"Carbonic maceration. A young wine made in the old way."
Wine maker notes
Grapes hand picked into 15-Kg boxes so as to keep the bunches whole until they were cold-macerated in the fermenting tanks over a 4-day period. Low-temperature fermentation to retain as fully as possible the floral and frutal aromas. Gentle pressing. Following malolactic fermentation, the wine was fined and bottled.

Technical notes
95% Tempranillo 5% Viura

Producer
Casa Primicia, the oldest building in the town of Laguardia, is the place where, from the 15th century onwards, the Church used to collect tithes from its serfs, consisting of one tenth of the harvest, including grapes, and also the primicias. Over five hundred years later, in 1973, Casa Primicia was showing signs of its great age. The time-worn wooden-framed roof was close to collapse, and the historic long cellars hadn't stored any wine for some time. A vine-grower from Laguardia, Julián Madrid, rescued this historic building, restoring the long cellars and making wine once more in the stone troughs. Through his pioneering spirit, Casa Primicia Wineries came into being. Acclaim. Casa Primicia Wineries has harvested numerous awards at national and international level. In recent years, it's the only winery in Spain that can claim to have won the Grand Prix d'Honneur at the prestigious Bordeaux Fair in 1993 and the prize for Best European Wine at the 2002 Japan Wine Challenge in Tokyo. In 2007 three of the winery's wines, Curium, Carravalseca and Primicia Reserve, made it over the 90-point bar in North American critic Robert Parker's famed list, in addition to the distinction conferred on Casa Primicia Wineries' wines each year in the main national and international magazines.
