Contino / 2016 Rioja Vina del Olivo


GRAPES: 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano.

ABV: 14%

Great aromas of fruit with an elegant complexity and a great richness of tannins, highlighting the spicy hints in perfect balance with the fruity nuances. Touches of red fruit and balsamic notes like anise, mint or liquorice. Great structure, rounded, with tannins of mature fruit and high quality barrels. It is a well balanced wine, powerful in mouth, complex and with good prospects of becoming a Great Wine.

VINEYARDS: Hand in baskets of 20 kilos selecting the best bunches of grapes from our Vina del Olivo plot.

VINTAGE: 2016 vintage has been characterized by the high summer temperatures and a winter with scarce rainfall.

WINEMAKING: Fermentation takes place during 10 days at 28-30° C in our 100 hecto liter French oak vats. Malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels. For the barrel ageing we put the wine in French, American and Hungarian oak casks successively for 17months. Finally, we left the wine to age in bottle for over a year.
