Vinification Details

Once the grapes have been received and crushed in the winery, the must is left for cold maceration. This allows the aromas to develop and extracts colour from the skins. The fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature, between 25 and 28° C and then the wine goes through a malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks .

History

Rioja is a region in Spain with a long, glorious vinicultural history. Rioja wine, especially the red, has been well known for centuries as Spain’s flagship's wine. Rioja was the first Spanish wine region to obtain DO status in 1925. In 1991, it was promoted to DOCa (Qualified Designation of Origin), a higher category reserved for wines maintaining a proven consistency and quality over a long period of time.

Regional Information

The production area included in the Denomination of Origin Rioja is located in La Rioja, Álava and Navarra. Rioja DOCa is known primarily for its reds. Most bodegas still use their own formulas for blending red wines with at least three grapes, the most important of which is Tempranillo. Today they offer a broad range of styles. Wines include varietals; blended wines which are shifting the emphasis from oak to fruit; and, at the top end of the market, the Reservas and Gran Reservas.
