El Barranco is a vineyard of Graciano planted in bush in 1940 and it is the oldest in the world, It is a vineyard at 400 metres altitude of pebbles and sandstones, probably one of the terroirs that best defines the typicity of the wines made in Manzanos.

ELABORATION
Harvest is made at night to preserve the freshness of the grapes intact. It is picked by hand in boxes of 12 kg. Each cluster is 200 230 grams, so we collect more than 1.6 kg per vine selected one by one by qualified personnel for it. The Fermentation is made in open French oak barrel. The aging is made in amphora of 1,500 l of concrete giving it a refinement in the bottle before leaving the cellar.
