Details

Allende 2010 is a single varietal Tempranillo whose grapes were selected from the 148 plots of vineyards, with an average age of 45 years, that the winery owns near the town of Briones.

Once in the cellar, the grapes were selected and destemmed. Without being crushed, they were put into stainless steel tanks, macerated at a low temperature for a week and fermented for over a period of 10 days with daily pump-overs. After a second maceration period in contact with their skins, this red wine produced by Finca Allende completed malolactic fermentation in those same steel tanks.

Afterwards, Allende 2010  fromLa Rioja was transferred into French and American oak barrels (only 2% of all), where it was aged for 14 months, with rackings being performed every 4 months. The wine was neither filtered nor clarified before its bottling.

Finca Allende is an environmentally conscious company that follows eco-friendly procedures both at the vineyard and in its production line. Accordingly, the label of this red wine from Rioja is made from recycled paper and organic ink.

We suggest that you decant this Spanish red wine for a minimum of 1 hour before you drink it.

Drink now to 2025.

Additional Information

Appearance

Allende has a clean, bright, medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.

Nose

This varietal Tempranillo by Miguel Ángel de Gregorio, winemaker of Finca Allende is an ode to fruit, from ripe notes of blackberries and bilberries, to hints of blueberries and raspberries. Delicate creamy notes, a dash of tobacco, notions of toast and balsam and an intimation of withered leaves and damp earth.

Palate

On the palate, this Spanish red wine from La Rioja  keeps an overall fruity character, enriched by a wonderful freshness and a yummy quality. Very well-balanced, with prominent notes of toast and Eastern spices. Acidity is remarkable, and tannins are ripe and gentle. Very persistent finish and great ageing potential, as all of Mr. De Gregorio's wines.

Our personal opinion

Allende 2010 with a T-Bone steak. Just think about it...

  1. Allende rioja review by Micky Malone on 8/24/2017
    Value

    The classy touch of the old Rioja, plus the fresh and zippy touch of the new one. Perfect combination. I raise my glass for Mr. de Gregorio. His white wine kills it too.
