Viticulture and vinification:

- The Project: The Malaspiedras project aims to value, care for and recover the most traditional plots of Arrieta Compañon family farms planted by our grandfathers and today we offer the fruits of the highest quality for winemaking.

- The Plots: "El Plano", "Balondo", "Vasconegro" and "Anagorio" all located in the municipality of Lanciego at an altitude of about 560 meters. All these small family plots are old farms that produce high quality grapes.

- Wine growing: Based on the minimal interaction in the vineyard and in a totally oriented to quality care grape vine growing. The wine also has the certificate of organic viticulture.

Winemaking: Grapes from four separate plots are vinified separately in open topped concrete tanks. Spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts, followed by ageing on fine lees with regular battonage in 500 litre French, American and Hungarian oak barrels. Certified organic.

Tasting notes:

Sight: Medium intensity cherry red with a violet rim.

Nose: Mature red fruit, with mineral and notes of brush undergrowth.

Palate: Medium bodied with good acidity, and a smoky, fruity aftertaste, this is a young, fresh, agile wine with tannins set to soften with time in the bottle.

Serving temperature:

16ºC

Food pairing:

Stews, Red meats with sauce, Roasted red meats, Acorn-fed Iberian ham, Deer, Grilled pork
