In the process of transforming in biodynamic farming
A blend of Tempranillo (85%) and Malvar* (15%), La Maldición "Tinto del Valdilecha" was originally called “Tinto para beber” or “Red to Drink”. It is fermented with natural yeast for 20-25 days without stems and aged in cement. “The fundamental idea is to encapsulate in the wines the landscape and the people who live and work in this land,” said the winemaker Marc Isart.
(*) Malvar is a white grape family member of Airen but is more aromatic and with even more acidity than Airen.
