The grapes were sourced from vineyards with soils of limestone and gravel, located over 600 metres above sea level.
The grapes were hand-harvested, destemmed and cold-macerated for 3 days in stainless steel tanks. This red wine from La Rioja was fermented under controlled temperature, and then it was transferred into Hungarian oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 9 months. To preserve its varietal qualities, Tobía Graciano Viñedos de Altura 2016 was not filtered prior to its bottling.
We suggest that you decant this Crianza red wine half an hour before drinking.
