The grapes are hand harvested in September by hand, de-stemmed and crushed then a 7 day maceration takes place with two daily pump-overs. Vinification then goes on for 14 days in Stainless Steel at 29°C. The wine is then aged in 100% American Oak for 18 months + 24 months in bottle.
Barón de Ley is a winery founded in 1985 by a small group of Rioja wine professionals and who conceive and start a project of innovative and unique characteristics in this prestigious DOCa. The original Baron de Ley project was based on the idea of developing a purely “vineyard driven” winery, oriented to the production of high quality wines from own vineyards. The other main guideline behind the project was to develop and implement a new style of “modern” Rioja wines
The winery is 320 ha located in Rioja Baja on Alluvial soils, rich in clays and limestone. Clear Mediterranean influence, which implies more insolation and less rains than in the western Rioja areas, which creates optimal conditions for the obtention of wines with more colour, concentration and poliphenolic maturation
