Fuego Lento red wine

 

Vineyard and Winemaking

 

This wine is the fruit of the viticulture that has always been practiced in the Alicante DO and which we intend to preserve. Grapes from goblet and dry-farmed vineyards, between 500 and 700 meters above sea level, in extreme climatic and viticultural conditions and under organic production criteria following the natural rhythms and cycles.

The Monastrell vines are more than 50 years old on a very deep calcareous loam soil full of boulders that facilitate drainage, providing the fruit, elegance and unctuousness typical of Mediterranean wines. The Alicante Bouschet vines bring concentration and express the minerality of our soils. The Syrah vines bring freshness, depth and floral notes that contribute to its complexity.

The province of Alicante has an ideal terroir for organic wines. Its soils with a clayey, stony base and low organic matter content, in addition to a Mediterranean climate with high temperatures in spring and summer, make for textbook organic agriculture.

A very careful winemaking process, based on a strict selection of grapes in the vineyard and on the sorting table, allows for long macerations aimed at extracting all the richness that these grapes contain.

A patient aging of 18 months in French oak and subsequent bottle ageing allows this wine to mature slowly.
