Rioja Tinto

2019
Spain
Rioja

100% Tempranillo from a high-altitude (600-750m) vineyard.  The grapes are 100% destemmed. Alcoholic fermentation is spontaneous and takes place in tank; the wine then spends a year in neutral French oak (225-L). No fining or filtering.

On the pallate we recieve red fruit notes with a slight floral and spicy notes. Well rounded with great acidity.

"2019 was a pretty warm vintage in Rioj a, but such is the altitude of Sandra Bravo's marginal site in the Sierra de Tolono that she picked this varietal Tempranillo in the first week of November. Spicy, fresh and unfiltered, this is a very impressive entry point red with minimal oak, tangy pomegranate and red berry fruit and wonderful perfume. "
