The fundamental characteristic of the 2012 vintage is to be the second consecutive year of drought. 472 mm. Rainfall were collected in the months of the growing season, but 84 mm. were after the harvest, therefore the rainfall used for the harvest did not reach 400 mm. and we came from a previous year of 363 mm.
The budding was late due to the cold temperatures and the scarce of water in the soil. From May the temperatures rose and the vineyard recovered the delay. It was a late harvest due to drought. As usual during the dry years the health of the grape was excellent. The self-regulation of the vine allowed that the ripening was good. There was little vegetation and low production, much lower than usual.

Great layer, deep, almost impenetrable and dark red edging.
Very complex, subtle. Fruits of all the colours, most of them black finding some red that try to find a way among the blackness.
Slight cloud of fine smoke that surrounds the ensemble, leaving grand spaces. Freshness in abundance, the feeling of a far field of fresh violets that the wind brings together with the smell of the soil.
Elegant, subtle, fine, great..., indescribable.
Voluminous, ethereal. The feeling of the nose appears caressing the mouth, letting out the freshness of the red fruit among the soil and violets. Fine chocolate filled with blueberry.
Long, silky and elegant. With a great future. We are sure that it will be a chamaleon, changing with the time and showing unknown facets.
The Graciano has left its mark and pushes from within to come to the surface with its fresh and personal redness.
