Grapes selected one by one in September 2019 that macerate 36 hours at 4º and, after 24 days in the conical tank, undergo a second fermentation in two-year-old French oak barrels to gain complexity and preserve the fruit. The wine rests for 18 months and is bottled, resting for another 6 months.
Intense, deep and purplish.
Floral aromas of violets characteristic of this vintage and aromas of strawberries and raspberries elegantly mixed with notes of aromatic plants. As the wine breathes, lactic notes appear. Finally, the aromas of wood are presented, with notes of chocolate and caramel.
The freshness of a wine with fruit, the power of a meticulous selection and the delicate and round tannins of an excellent vintage. The red fruit and minerals remain in the mouth and are mixed with a pleasant sensation achieved in its stay in wood.
Uva por Uva
2 127 bottles make up this “Uva por Uva” 2019, of Excellent vintage, of high expression, of exquisite palates, of restless tastes, of Rioja lovers.
Uva por Uva is a wine that perfectly reflects its place of origin. It reflects its Mediterranean soul, and it is a true specimen of the 2019 vintage, which has been so unique that was qualified as “Excellent” by the Rioja Control Board, something we haven´t seen since 2011.
When you look at it, it is intense, deep and purplish. When you smell it, you are captivated by the floral aromas of violets typical of the 2019 vintage. The strawberry and raspberry aromas flows straight into your nose elegantly mixed with hints of aromatic plants; these last aromas must have something to do with the thyme trees that naturally grows next to our plot. If you let it open, lactic aromas of a controversial fermentation will come out and, finally, the touch of oak will be present with chocolate and caramel aromas.
On the palate, you can feel the freshness of a fruity wine, the power of a meticulous selection and the delicate and rounded tannins of an excellent vintage. The red fruit stays long with minerality, and it is mixed with a nice sweetness achieved by the French oak.
