This single varietal Spanish red wine was traditionally vinified. Following the venerable Rioja traditions, the grapes were fermented and macerated in big wooden vats.
After that, it was aged for 12 months in 225-litre American oak barrels.
Produced by El Coto de Rioja, El Coto Crianza 2015 was aged for a further 6 months before its bottling.
The wine El Coto Crianza has a very bright cherry colour with a garnet rim. Medium robe.
This wine by Bodega El Coto from La Rioja conveys fresh notes of red fruit and spices, combined with aromas of smoke and aromatic herbs.
Fresh and accessible, this Tempranillo from La Rioja has a light passage through the palate. Good acidity and ripe tannins, with remembrances of ripe red fruit, spices and a slightly bitter touch.
