The earth is rich in iron, which gives it a red colour. In the dry climate of Tabuenca, we only get 250 – 400 mm of rainfall per year. This forces the vines to grow their roots deep into the “terra rossa” soil to reach the water and extract enough nutrients. The maturation process is slower and produces more elegant tannin. This also reduces yields per hectare to about 2500 kg of fully ripe, concentrated and complex berries.
