An old vineyard is highly used for the best wines, since this kind of vines produce the best quality grapes. But... why are these grapes from old vineyards the best ones?

In the old vineyards…

- The vine is less vigorous and that gives a lower production with more complete ripening.

- The different wounds produced by the pruning process make hard the sap transmission and, as a result, the production is limited providing  reduced clusters with unleashed and small berries that let us taking a better ratio for the grape-juice quantity-quality. Because of this, we can find more intense wines (color, flavors, structure). 

- An old vineyard is totally made up for the land having a stronger personality. The vineyard, therefore has a hardest expression of “terroir” with a stronger root-sistem that makes possible to get a very exclusive grapes with strong   character, the identity of the soils.
