Altos R Reserva Rioja 2017
After passing the selection table upon entering the winery, the grapes were destemmed, crushed and cold macerated for four days before undergoing alcoholic fermentation at an average temperature of 30º C. for ten days. It was macerated for another 15 days and completed malolactic fermentation in barrels.
The wine was aged in 80 percent French oak and 20 percent American oak for 24 months with periodic racking every six months.
Ruby red colour with a hint of brick, medium dark.
Refined and elegant, a nice mix of aromas of beeswax, fine spices and leather, over a base of well ripened cherry-berry fruit.
Here again showing elegance and complexity with toasty oak and leathery notes on a base of refined ripe cherry fruit flavours.
This wine goes well with small game, red meats, grilled lamb and cured cheeses
