Alfredo Maestro started making wine in the late 1990's.  Since 2003 his wines have contained no additives at all, including sulphur.  Known as the 'Magician of the Duero', he has emerged as one of the most lauded and dynamic natural winemakers in Spain. 75% of this particular cuvee comes from 80 year old Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) vines from the Valtiendas area, just south of the Ribera del Duero. The remaining 25% is from young Tinto Fino vines planted on sand and clay on the River Duraton. Fermented with wild yeasts and aged for 4 months in used French oak, only 10,000 bottles were produced.
