El Coto Real 2010
This wine has been produced mainly from Tempranillo, small percentages are from Mazuelo and Garnacha Tinta. The grapes come from old vines with a high quality potential in Rioja Alta. Deep cherry red color. Notes of mocha and café adorned with aromas of forest fruits. Silky and dense on the palate. Long aftertaste.
The grapes are picked and placed in 350 kg crates; they are preserved until they reach the winery, where they are then chosen from a sorting table. The maceration and alcoholic fermentation occurs in small stainless steel deposits of 100hl with daily pumping and long maceration. The malolactic fermentation takes place in barrels. They have selected various barrels types from particular origins, barrels that have been toasted and from coopers, which without doubt contributes to the complexity of the wine.
