Characteristics of Alma de Tobía Rosado
Alma Tobia Rosado is a rose wine made by Bodegas Tobia in La Rioja.
Bodegas Tobia was the first winery to produce a rose fermented in barrel. Alma Tobia Rosado is a blend composed mainly of Tempranillo and Graciano varieties, with a small percentage of Merlot.
Alma Tobia Rosado is designed in a minimalist way, with the least possible intervention for maximum expression of fruit and wood.
The vinification of each variety is done separately. The grapes macerate with the skins for 36 hours at a low temperature. After the maceration is complete, there is the bleeding of wine, which is then fermented in new French oak barrels of fine grain.
Alma Tobia Rosado is aged for five months in these same barrels, periodically removing the lees. After the aging, the final assembly of the three varieties is performed.

High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with scarce rainfall, spring started with a lot of rain, which favoured the growth cycle of the vine. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in great, healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is defined by a voluminous vintage that can be enjoyed from its youth.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Qa Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
