Fine wine "A Mano" Edicion Limitada is a blend of Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuela collected from 35-year-old vines coming from the vineyard "Pago El Rincon" in Rioja Alta. Wine is produced in a limited edition - vintage 2009 is limited to only 3,500 bottles.
Crop is harvested by hand at the peak of ripeness. The primary fermentation of grape must held in steel tanks at a temperature of 28 ° C in the first few days after collection. Subsequent maceration on the skins in small conical tanks lasts for four weeks in order to maximize the extraction of color and aromas. Malolactic fermentation takes place in new French oak barrels with frequent stirring to obtain a smooth texture. Wine is aged in new oak barrels - six months in French and 4 months in Russian. Then drink bottled without filtration.
Wine "A Mano" Editions Limitada several years included in the "Top 100" ranking in the magazine "Wine Spectator" and now deservedly considered a benchmark of Rioja wines.
