Contino Mazuelo is made with the best grapes from the “Don Vicente” plot located in our San Rafael estate vineyards. The aim is to extract the full potential of this grape variety.
After destemming, the grapes undergo a cold maceration for 24-48 hours until the alcoholic fermentation begins spontaneously in a raw concrete tanks, at a controlled temperature throughout the process, with very few pump-overs. The malolactic fermentation is also carried out naturally. The wine is aged for 16 months in 100% French oak barrels, of which 80% is new and the remaining 20% is of second use.
