Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

An everyday wine, the kind you pour yourself to switch off when you get home after a tiring day. This is the style that Carmen Pérez, with help from oenologist Basiliio Izquierdo, wants to give to Selvanevada, a red wine made in the Villota winery in Rioja Alavesa.

This is where you need to look at newspaper archives and studies. You must have read that a glass of wine a day is good for the heart, right? The man responsible for this fact, which everyone knows, but no one knows where it came from, was René Favaloro, an Argentine cardiologist who claimed in a study that the polyphenols contained in a glass of wine a day were good for your health. Selvanevada is the perfect wine to use for this medical purpose.

The soil of the D.O.Ca. Rioja lights up the grapes used in this red wine. The vines lie on the San Rafael estate, right by a meander of the Ebro River, in the village of Laserna. Different grape varieties are selected to make Selvanevada from this 113-hectare vineyard.

In the winery, the Selvanevada fermentation process is key. Over the 12 days, there are pump-overs and the grapes are destemmed. This latter technique, which involves removing the wine from the tank and returning it in the middle of fermentation, encourages oxygenation and the corresponding increase in yeasts (with oxygen being essential for the yeast’s development in the early stages of fermentation). After this, it is devatted and two days later it is transferred to French oak barrels, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and the lees are separated in 3 rackings.

Finally, the 6 month aging process is the final touch needed to give Selvanevada all the character that makes it the best everyday wine.

Rioja is one of the most important areas of wine production in the world. It has a long history, and exceptional soils and climates. From the Tempranillo and Grenache varieties they make great red wines that are masterfully aged which demonstrates the experience passed from generation to generation.
