Characteristics of El Puntido

El Puntido is a red wine from the Rioja produced by the Viñedos de Páganos winery. This winery belongs to the Eguren Group, which owns other wineries such as Sierra Cantabria or Señorio de San Vicente.

Viñedos de Páganos is located in Páganos, a small village in the municipality of Laguardia, in Rioja Alavesa. Its facilities are carved into the rock, just below the vineyard.

El Puntido is a varietal Tempranillo. The grapes come from vineyards planted at an altitude of 600m on clay loam soil. The vineyard is 25ha and was planted in 1975. It supports an Atlantic climate with continental influences.

The development of El Puntido begins with a manual harvest and a double selection on the table, where the best clusters and the best beans are selected.

After selecting, the juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks for 8-10 days at a controlled temperature between 28 and 30°C. During the fermentation, daily movements are performed 2 or 3 times per day during the first days, ending with a daily pumping.

After the fermentation process, the wine is left to macerate for three weeks.

The last step for preparation is aging in new French oak barrels for 18 months, in which the wine is aged on its lees during the first four months.

Alcohol: 14.0%
