The impurities are denatured and eliminated and the must is then fortified again up to 18º to finally become part of the Criaderas y Soleras system where it undergoes an oxidative ageing in barrels for at least 20 years. Finally the resulting wine has approximately 380gr/litre of all-natural sugar.
