PROELIO CEPA A CEPA

Selection of the highest part of La Esperilla at Clavijo.

This part of land has silty and sandy soils, without too much vigour, where the plant naturally regulates the load. The size of the clusters is smaller to obtain a higher concentration along with a superb acidity. Long life for this wine with 10 months of ageing in cask.
