Supple cherry and damson fruit flavourings with just a twist of vanilla and spice from ageing in American oak barrels. Produced from the indigenous Tinta da Toro ( also known as Tempranillo ) variety, grown on irrigated bush vines in Toro's pebble soils at 700 metres above sea level. The name Cien meaning 100, relates to the number of days the wine was matured in barrel.

We plan the optimum harvest time for each varietal. The grapes are destemmed and then pressed to obtain the musts. We then add selected yeasts and the musts ferment at a temperature of 15 to 17 °C. Once all the fermentations have taken place and the wines have been stabilised they are then blended and the resulting wine is bottled along with the liqueur de tirage. The bottles are stored in our underground cellars (at a constant temperature of 17 °C) where the second fermentation takes place followed by a period of aging in contact with the lees of the yeasts. All in all, the wine is stored for a minimum of 9 months in the winery after which it is decanted and degorged. A dose of expedition liqueur is then added which determines the cava’s residual sugar content as Brut. Finally, the bottle is capped with a cork closure.
The grapes used in making Codorníu Clasico Brut basically come from the D.O. Cava most Mediterranean region where these local varietals attain their full typicity. They are grown on vine plots selected by our viticulture and winemaking teams throughout the year in order to continuously improve crops, monitor ripeness and determine the right moments for harvesting so that the grapes enter our winery in optimum condition, once they have been carefully and rapidly transported.

A delicious blend of three traditional grapes: Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Graciano. This fully mature wine is made by the family run Francos Espanolas winery.
The wine is fermented for 10 days before being aged in American oak barriques for 36 months. Once bottled it is aged for a further 24 months in the winery cellars before being released.
The wine is ruby in colour with light edges. It has elegant aromas of spice and tobacco leaf. The palate is silky and round with lightly spiced ripe berry notes which add elegance and leads to a savoury finish.
Great with red meat stews, game and strong cheeses.
