Contino Vina del Olivo 2016

Ruby red with attractive youth, clear and medium-high tones. Very intense nose with an initial spicy touch that leads to blackberry and currant fruit and final evolution towards balsamic aromas such as aniseed, mint and licorice. The palate has good tannins for conservation and is broad and vinous, with an after taste of ripe fruit and cocoa tones.

Vineyard
All Contino wines are made from grapes exclusively grown on
the 62 hectare estate located in Laserna, near the town of
Laguardia in the Rioja Alavesa wine making region. This was
the first single estate concept in the Rioja region and was
established in 1973.
Winemaking
Manual harvest in baskets of 20 kilos of the better bunches of
grapes from our plot Viña Del Olivo (situated around an old
olive tree which is approximately 800 years old).
Fermentation takes place during 10 days at 28-30° C in our
100 hectoliter French oak winemaking vats. Malolactic
fermentation took place in new French oak barrels, and for
the barrel ageing we put the wine in French, American and
Hungarian oak casks successively along 17 months. Finally,
we left the wine to age in bottle for over a year
