Characteristics of Alcorta Reserva

Alcorta Reserva is a red wine from the IO Rioja prepared by the Alcorta winery, from the Domecq group. This is a single varietal Tempranillo, a grape typical of this area.

The grapes come from vineyards which mostly exceed 25 years. The harvest is done manually and certain plots are reserved for this wine.

Alcorta Reserva is aged for two years in new and nearly new American and French oak barrels. Subsequently, it spends a year in bottle.

This wine, grown in La Rioja Alta, is a clear example of Rioja Tempranillo. The Alcorta winery, part of the natural landscape and respective of the environment, together with the collaboration of the oenologist Elena Adell, spends year after year working for the best wines.

Alcohol: 13.5%

Tasting notes Alcorta Reserva

This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
2010 was considered the perfect vintage after some very good years. An optimal growth cycle, without incidents regarding the health of the vineyards. The harvest took place during a magnificent state of the vines and with a moderate production, with good fruit setting and slow ripening. A great year with excellent ageing potential, which resulted in spicy and fruity wines, with a very good structure and acidity.
Sight Intense red. Bright and neat, deep. Nose The intensity is medium to high. Aromas of ripe, fleshy red fruit. Spicy hints of aging. Taste Good entry, spicy and toasted flavours. The taste is balanced and has good acidity. Red fruit aftertaste.
Sight Cherry red colour with ruby edge. Clean and bright, with a great depth. Nose Clean nose, with medium-high intensity. Ripe and fleshy red fruit stands out, but it is quickly melted with the toasted hints, the creamy notes and the final spiced touches typical of its ageing. Taste Good attack. In the mouth, unlike the nose, pleasant spiced and toasted sensations predominate during the attack. Tasty and silky mid-palate. Balanced, with a correct acidity. Great finish with an aftertaste of red fruit. For being a Reserva wine, it is pleasant and easy drinking.
Sight Intense ruby colour, with pale maroon edges. Clean and bright. Nose Clean nose, medium-high intensity. Ripe and fleshy red fruit dominates at first and then melts with toasted, creamy notes and spicy touches from its ageing. Taste Good attack. Unlike the nose, spicy and toasted sensations are felt at first. On the palate it is tasty and silky. Balanced, with the correct acidity. A good finish with an aftertaste of red fruit. For a Reserva, this wine is easy and very enjoyable to drink.
Sight Intense and deep cherry colour with ruby red trims. Clean and bright. Good tears. Nose Intense and complex. Lots of ripe red fruit that is quickly blended with the intense notes of toasted, some creamy  touches and a  final  spicy hint. Taste Nice attack that fills the mouth.
