The interpretation of Pago

A wine that is the truest reflection of its origin.

To make this wine we selected the ripest grapes from the Pago de Carraovejas from the Tinto Fino and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties.

This was a remarkably excellent vintage.

Aged for 12 months in American and French oak barrels.

It was Bottle, unclarified, on July of 1998 .

Of the 120,000 bottles obtained from this vintage 1,000 are Magnum size.

“Crianza is the most faithful reflection of Pago de Carraovejas. A wine that became a myth”.
