This is the new vintage of Basagoiti Fuera del Rebaño, a sort of a modern classic from La Rioja.
Made from a blend of Tempranillo, Graciano and Grenache, this Spanish red wine is made from vineyards over 25 years of age planted in clayey-limestone soils with pebble stones on the surface, all of them located in La Rioja Baja.
Harvested at dusk, once in the facilities of the Basagoiti winery - a brand of Grupo Parxet - the grapes were macerated for 16 days at a controlled temperature.
After that, this red wine from La Rioja was aged in French and American oak barrels for 14 months. Finally, Basagoiti Fuera del Rebaño 2015 was aged for a further 10 months in the bottle.
Drink this Crianza red wine over the next 6 years.
The wine Basagoiti Fuera del Rebaño has a deep cherry colour with some violet edges.
Fragrant and suggestive, this Crianza red wine from La Rioja conveys some very pure aromas of ripe red and black fruit, alongside very well integrated wooden nuances - spices, smoke, toast - together with some dim mineral and balsamic notes.
This wine by Bodega Basagoiti has a very pleasant entry onto the palate with a passage that is big and well-structured. Lush, nimble and fresh, with smooth tannins and a good definition. The aftertaste is very long and pleasant, with some balsamic and earthy remembrances.
