Product Description
This Spanish red wine, Tempranillo, Baigorri B70 from the Rioja, is crafted entirely from Tempranillo grapes that were harvested from grapevines with over 70 years of age. These old vines have annual yields of less than 4,400 pounds (2000 Kg) from all of Baigorri´s old grape vines. These vines are situated in small plots throughout the Siera Cantabira region of the Rioja in Spain. After the Tempranillo grapes arrive at the winery, they are processed through vibrating selection tables and weighed, each and every grape used in this coupage was hand selected. In order to extract the full aromatic potential from these incredible Spanish Tempranillo grapes, there was a long pre-fermentation maceration process. After maceration the alcoholic fermentation is preformed in French oak barrels filled to 160 gallons (600 Liters). This wine is then transferred, with its lees, into new, fine grain French oak barrels, for malolactic fermentation and an ageing process of 22 months. After this long and meticulous process the wine is bottle aged for an additional 12 months.
Additional Information
Additional Information
Appearance A cherry red colored body with bluish edges. Bright and clean with a tear that coats the glass.
Nose This wine has high aromatic intensity. There are loads of red and black fruits that are all very ripe and entwined with minerals and herbs along a spiced background.
Palate This wine has a pleasant but potent entrance onto the palate, with a big passage that is well-rounded and well-balanced. The aftertaste is long and persistent. The retronasal olfaction qualities of this wine push fruit jams with touches of balsamic and toasts around the nose and palate.
Our personal opinion This is a very elegant wine with a lot of power. This wine would be the perfect gift for the best cook in your family.
