Peñaranda de Duero is made exclusively with the fine red variety from three small plots (Calderón, El Alto and 2 Enebros) located between 898 and 903 meters above sea level. They are vineyards planted between 70 and 90 years ago in calcareous soils, with sandy, clayey and silty areas.
Alcoholic fermentation took place in a small conical stainless steel tank. It developed spontaneously, with native yeasts, in order to preserve the uniqueness of this area. Our intervention was minimal (except for frequent manual punching) and the expression of the grape is maximum. The malolactic fermentation was carried out in a tank cubic concrete.
Legaris Peñaranda del Duero was aged for 10 months in 500-liter French barrels. Subsequently, the final coupage was made and in order to maintain its typicality it was decided to bottle it in the branch (without clarifying and without filtering).
