Volver 2015, by Jorge Ordóñez, is a varietal Spanish red wine made from grapes coming from old, low-yielding Tempranillo vineyards.

Produced by Bodegas Volver, the grapes were manually harvested and selected at the vineyard.
After a traditional vinification process, malolactic fermentation and ageing was carried out in new French oak barrels. The process took 15 months to complete.
The wine was not filtered prior to its bottling.
Decant Volver 30 minutes before drinking.
