Altos R Pigeage Graciano Rioja 2020
After a careful selection, the grapes were destemmed, crushed, stored in small 2,000 litre tanks and cold macerated for four days before undergoing alcoholic fermentation at a temperature between 25-30ºC. Three times per day, the pigeage is conducted manually in order to submerge the cap. It was macerated for another 15 days and completed malolactic fermentation in new barrels from the best coopers, where the lees are stirred to keep them in contact with the wine.
It takes place in the same barrels for 15 months being racked every five months.
Intense cherry red colour, well covered and with a beautiful purple edge.
It has a frank nose, powerful and very complex with mineral notes , red berries, eucalyptus and white peper. Balsamic and spicy.
Powerful jet round, smooth and fresh. It shows again a big complexity with red fruit flavours, spicies and a very long finish.
Pairs very well with red meats and roasts
