Wine description

EL CRISTO was the first vineyard planted at such an altitude in the area, since all the other existing vines are young, having been planted in the last 15 years. Its location in height, physically bordering the Sierra de Cantabria forest, provide a great uniqueness to its fruits.

Three small terraces where grapes are grown that have to coexist with a hostile climate marked by strong winds and cold temperatures, resulting in a fresh, intense wine with lively acidity and great aging capacity.
