More information about Altos R Tempranillo Rioja DOCa - Altos de Rioja

The Altos R Tempranillo of Altos de Rioja presents a strong, red-purple color. The nose is dominated by fresh, juicy wild berries, complemented by spicy herbal hints and gentle balsamic notes.

On the palate, this barrel-aged Tempranillo from Spain's top Rioja DOCa region reveals an extract-rich body accompanied by velvety tannins. Elegant fruit aromas of blackberries, aromatic blueberries and light hints of dark cherries complement the aromas on the nose. Spicy nuances of cedar and vanilla underline and complement the fruit notes.

Vinification of the Altos R Tempranillo from Altos de Rioja

The grapes for the Altos R Tempranillo come from 10 to 20 year old vines from the villages of Laguardia, Elvillar and Cripan. After destemming, the grapes are crushed and cold macerated for about four days. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in 15 days between 25 and 28°C. After fermentation in tank, further aging takes place in used barriques made of 80% French and 20% American oak for a total of 6 months.
