Selección Especial is the fruitiest of the family. A very strict grape selection narrows the potential harvest down to very specific vines, those capable of maximum expression of an inviting, smooth Tempranillo red whose principal values have to do with the best aromas that this flagship Spanish grape variety can offer and not so much with those contributed by the maturing process which has been kept to a mere few months in oak.
