The winery shares space with the exceptional El Puntido vineyard, an ancient word that means "landing", similar to the terrace that forms between the Cantabrian Mountains and the depression of the River Ebro.


The area is under the influence of an Atlantic climate with hints of continentality, sheltered from the cold north winds thanks to the protection of the Cantabrian Mountains, which gives the vineyard, and consequently the wine, a unique mineral character. The vineyard has a 25-hectare south-facing slope and was harrowed in 1975 with the Tempranillo variety on a clayey soil with a sandstone rock subsoil. Very close by is La Nieta, a small plot of 1.75 hectares located on clayey soil of little depth and thickness where the Tempranillo variety is also obtained. With poorer soils than those of El Puntido and a completely different microclimate, and after subjecting the vineyard to little vigor and production in a natural way, a high quality fruit is obtained from which the same wine is made. Name.

Dark red in color, violet edge, very clean and bright, with slow and dense tears. On the nose, elegant aromas of very ripe fruits, spices, minerals, balsamic, dairy and smoked tones. In the mouth it is powerful, elegant and complex, dense and with excellent structure, with solid, well-tamed tannins. A round wine with great personality.
