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.

Tasting notes Alcorta Reserva

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. Toasted spicy sensations at the beginning. Rich, velvety and meaty mid palate. Balanced wine, with correct acidity. Good finish with aftertaste of  red fruits. Very  easy and pleasant to drink considering that it is  a Reserva wine.
