The abundant rainfall in winter and spring allowed the vineyard to accumulate optimal water reserves to face the hot and dry summer. The ripening of the grapes took place in the best conditions, without rain and with a wide thermal contrast between day and night, this led to a harvest of excellent quality.
We make a careful selection of the grapes in the vineyard and transport to the winery in small boxes of 12 kilos to maintain maximum respect for the quality of the fruit. Once in the winery, a final selection on the sorting table will ensure the optimal conditions of health and maturity with the subsequent cold pre-fermentation maceration at 5°C for 5 days. All this to achieve a greater polyphenolic extraction by means of a gentle daily pumping over. The vineyard's own yeasts carry out alcoholic fermentation spontaneously, and with controlled temperatures between 26°-28°C.
Viña Magna performs malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks and in oak Barrels. It is aged in French oak barrels under controlled conditions of humidity and temperature (75% and 14°C respectively). Bâtonnage of the lees every 15 days.
Ideal for roasted red meats (suckling lamb, suckling pig), grilled white meats, and small game meats such as hare and rabbit.
This wine has a warm cherry red color. Very bright with a beautiful mirror. Complex aromas of raspberries, cherries and blackcurrants in combination with notes of cocoa, vanilla and spices obtained during barrel aging. Nice minerality.
Supple tannins and an elegant acidity provide a luscious Dominio Basconcillos Vina Magna Crianza with a nice aging potential.
