MATURE WINES 

It corresponds to wines to which time, that is to say the course of cosmic cycles and rhythms has transmitted and allowed to fix the experiences and events of their rackings, decantations, that nuance them and enrich them "in wisdom".
Wines that transmit elegance, calmness and slow conversation.
In La Bodega de las Estrellas we do two types of maturation processes.
The well-known and classic aging in oak barrels, and the even slower evolution in amphorae whose essential quality is a non-invasive model of the varietal qualities of the wine as it does not provide "wood".

In this range we use the red variety: Tempranillo, which in its ecotype "Cencibel" we consider autochthonous and the beloved and adopted white variety, Macabeo.

With Tempranillo we make DIONISOS EGO Barrica (9 months in oak barrels) only with grapes, without sulphites or additives, and DIONISOS EGO Amphora matured for 4 years in amphorae and DIONISOS Macabeo Barrica elaborated with all the skin and matured 9 months in oak. 

Mention apart: VIEJO DIONISOS. Sweet white wine but of golden color and sweet palate, that more than maturing has aged. Delicious.
