El Coto Rioja Crianza 1.5Ltr
PRODUCER: The El Coto vineyards, 8 farms, are spread throughout all of the subareas of the Denomination of Origin Rioja. The use of traditional indigenous varieties as well as the newly authorised ones allows us to maintain all the typical characteristics of Rioja in our wines.
WINEMAKING: The Tempranillo grapes are fermented in the winery in Oyón in vats of between 30 and 45 MT equipped with the most advanced technology for the strict control of the fermentation temperatures and maceration and extraction of colour. The objective is to achieve an appropriate compromise between structure and balance in the wines. At least 12 months in select 225 litre American oak barrels and at least 6 months in the bottle before leaving the winery.
TASTING NOTE: This wine offers excellent value for money with grapes emanating from all three Rioja sub-zones. Ruby-red colour in colour, the pleasantly fragranced nose exhibits fresh fruit aromas with a touch of vanilla and oak liquorice hints. Showing great balance on the palate, the wine is silky-smooth with a nice finish.
