Produced by one of the best-known Spanish wineries, Coto de Imaz Reserva is made in La Rioja.
Previously destemmed, the grapes were cold-macerated for 18 days in stainless steel tanks.
After that, the wine was fermented at a controlled temperature and subsequently aged for 18 months in 225-litre American oak barrels.
Finally, this reserve red wine was aged for a further 18 months in the bottle before its commercial release.
Drink Coto de Imaz Reserva 2014 over the next 4 years.
The red wine Coto de Imaz Reserva has an intense, bright cherry color with some ruby edges.
This reserve red wine suggests some pleasant aromas of fleshy red fruit with a touch of liquor. In this wine by El Coto de Rioja we also perceive expressive leather remembrances, and hints of bitter cocoa, toast, spices and withered leaves.
A nice Tempranillo from Rioja. This is tasty, easy to drink and well-balanced, with a silky texture. This Reserva Coto de Imaz leaves remembrances of liquorice, chocolate, wild berries and spices. Ripe tannins and medium finish.
