The Callejo family owns 60 hectares of low yielding Tempranillo vines (Tinto Fino as it is known in Ribera del Duero) ranging in age from 25-70 years. Felix Callejo uses grapes from its Estate only. The grapes are carefully selected and handpicked into small cases of 30 pounds. Carried in small quantities, there is no danger of having the grape skins break and sparking an undesired premature fermentation. The crates are taken directly to the winery, where they go through two selection tables, the second one selecting grape by grape and discarding any imperfect grapes​.

Ripe and silky, this vibrant old vine Tempranillo is from a fastidious producer who also happens to be a legend. And organic. With slurpy, sweet-fruited richness it's tempting to call it 'hedonistic' but it seems to nasty a word for a wine so appealing and supple, almost pretty.
Winery notes (2012 Vintage)
"​Violet cherry color well covered. The nose is complex and very aromatic. Great elegance which include notes of plum, blueberry, blackberry, pepper, thyme, cocoa powder, fine leather, leaves, aromatic woods. The mid-palate is very juicy, large, fresh and of great structure and balance, sensations of red and black fruit, floral, underbrush, cinnamon, nutmeg, pastry notes. Long finish primary, dairy and spicy."
