Grapes are handpicked and tripled selected, aged in new French oak barrel for 18 months
Selectus is the bodega’s signature wine showing fabulous expressiveness of Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot lending roundness. These wonderful grapes combined with ageing from the selection of the best barrels gives this wine great complexity. Selectus can be consumed immediately, but it will evolve over the next few years in bottle adding even more savoury notes.
Very few bottles of this splendid wine are made, and only in the very best years. Selectus is powerful and spectacular.

BODEGA LOS ALJIBES
This traditional La Mancha Bodega is surrounded by 178 hectares of vineyards which reach an altitude of almost a thousand metres. This altitude ensures that the wines being produced are highly expressive. Although the appearances of this Bodega are traditional, as are some practises, Los Aljibes also embrace modernity to ensure they lead the way in this region while still preserving its cultural identity.
Not only is the wine fantastic but Bodega Los Aljibes is a great place to visit with their enotourism offering. The bodega and the grounds are open to visit. There you will experience the stunning La Mancha landscape in all its glory. Surrounded buy kermes and holm oaks, red partridges, rabbits and farmland. In the centre of all of this landscape and the rolling vineyards is the welcoming country house of the bodega.
