The Graciano, a nearly exitinct variety of Rioja, comes from several vineyards planted in Alfaro of the Rioja DOCa. The vines were planted back in 1997 upon beds of chalky alluvial soils and are entirely maintained by hand. The grapes are sorted at the winery after the harvest. Temperature controlled fermentation occurs in stainless steel by indigenous yeast. The wine is transferred to first through third use barrels for malolactic fermentation. The wine then ages for 4 months in French oak sur lie.
