The affordable red 2018 Medianías was produced with Listán Negro from the ancient cordón trenzado vineyards Habanera, La Florida and Fortaceros, and it fermented in concrete tanks with 20% full clusters and indigenous yeasts. It was partly aged in 500-liter oak vats and 2,500-liter oak foudre for nine months, and part of the volume was kept in concrete. This is a little rounder and has more black fruit with a balsamic and creamy touch that gives it a slightly more commercial profile. It has fine tannins and a slight bitterness in the finish.
