Overview

The early budding Albillo Real, despite being widely planted in the Sierra de Gredos is an intriguing choice, especially at high elevations sites prone to frost. Picarana is the “village” Albillo made at Bodega Marañones from fruit sourced from vineyards near the cellar at an elevation of 850m on granitic sand as well as fruit from Dehesa, their lowest elevation site at 650m on alluvial soils.
