The vines are deleafed and pruned in January, and the grapes are handpicked from Matias Riccitelli's vineyard in Vistalba, Lujande Cuyo, which was planted in 1908. 

Harvested by hand in small trays of 20kg in order not to damage the grapes. Double meticulous sorting is performed by hand prior to vinification in order to select the best grapes.

100% of the wine was aged in French oak barrels during 18 months, with final clarification with fresh egg whites.

In October 2021 Decanter wrote "Spiced currants, meat and graphite. Bright and lively palate with a floral lift and elegant tannins."
