Contino Reserva 2015

Deep red garnet. Aromas of dark berries, spice and a hint of smoke follow through to a full body and velvety tannins. Well balanced, fine, very fresh, juicy.

Vineyard
Manually harvested from a selection of Contino's estate
vineyards. Contino's wines are made exclusively from the
stocks planted on its 62 hectares located in Laserna, near the
town of Laguardia in the Rioja Alavesa wine making region.
Winemaking
Wine produced from well-selected grapes, in perfect ripeness
and manually harvested from our own vineyards around the
plot Finca de San Rafael. After destemming, the grapes were
fermented in stainless steel tanks of 12,000 litres at 28-30°C.
After a maceration of 15 to 20 days, the grapes were
fermented by the malelactic process, giving the wine its
adequate acidity. The wine is placed in already-used barrels
of 40% American oak and 60% French, where it remains for
two years and then two more years ageing in bottles in the
cellar.
Vintages
2015 was a year with little rainfall during the whole
vegetative cycle but well distributed in the critical phases of
the crop. Autumn and winter saw mild temperatures; Frost in January and February was not too
severe and spring and Summer were warm.
