Product Description
Details

Produced by Bodega Tobía, Alma de Tobía Rosado Fermentado en Barrica is a high-quality rosé wine fermented in wooden barrels.

Interestingly, the Tobía winery was the first to produce a Spanish rosé wine fermented in oak in La Rioja.

It is made from a blend of Tempranillo and Maturana.  The first variety comes from two vineyards: one was planted in 1965 in the town of San Asensio, an area with an Atlantic microclimate; the other, organically farmed, is located at a higher altitude, in the town of Hornilla, and it has rocky soils.

As for Maturana, it comes from an organically farmed estate located at 650 metres of altitude, in an area with a harsh Continental climate.

Both varieties were harvested in October. Once in the cellar, the grapes were cold-soaked at a low temperature for 48 hours. Then the wine must was drawn off and transferred into new French oak barrels, where it was fermented and aged for 5 months with periodic stirrings

After that, Alma de Tobía Rosado Fermentado en Barrica 2018 was blended and bottled.

Only 15 barrels produced.

Appearance

Nose

Produced by Bodega Tobía, this rosé wine fermeted in oak shows a rich aromatic expression. Strawberries, raspberries and cherries, along with some floral and balsamic touches. Then we perceive notes of menthol and spices, such as Jamaica pepper, along with some smokey hints and mineral remembrances. 

Palate

This rosé wine of Bodegas Tobía has an excellent balance between power and freshness. The palate is smooth and tense, with delicious notes of wild red berries, flowers and spices, enlivened by an excellent acidity and an elegant, slightly bitter finish. Alma Tobía Rosado lingers for a long time in your mouth and leaves you wanting for more.

This is way more than the usual pale, skinny rosé. Nice body, a touch of herbs and berries, and still very fresh. I enjoy this kind of rosé very much, because it pairs well with many kinds of food.
