You can always hope for something special from a vineyard which has experienced 3 centuries. That is the case with Barranco del Prado, pre-phylloxera ungrafted vines over 120 years’ old and planted at an altitude of almost 800 metres. A real gem that reflects a long-gone form of viticulture which allows us to achieve the highest expression of purity and a reflection of the terroir of the Sierra de Yerga.
A wild, dense, concentrated wine, with intense floral and wild herb aromas, notes of violets and incense and the freshness of a grape cultivated at an altitude of almost 800 metres.
