Overview

Malpuesto is a Tempranillo vineyard that gets its name from the carelessly manner in which it was planted. These vines are greater than 80 years old and are rooted in sandy limestone soil at an elevation of 532 meters above sea level. Despite its name, this site stood out as a singularly pure expression of Tempranillo so the Anton family decided to bottle it separately.
