Characteristics of Bozeto de Exopto Rosado
Boceto de Exopto Rosado is a pink wine from La Rioja prepared by the Exopto cellar. This wine is a blend of Grenache (50%) and Tempranillo (50%).
Boceto de Exopto Rosadocomes from old vines between 30 and 50 years old. The predominant type of soil is clayey and calcareous.
The harvest, which takes place between September and October, is made with boxes of 12 kilos of capacity. In this way it seeks to prevent grains from breaking and fermenting prematurely.
Both in the vineyard and in the winery laborious process of selecting clusters are conducted. The grapes undergo a direct pressing and then are fermented in stainless steel tanks at a constant and controlled temperature of 15 degrees.
Boceto de Exopto Rosado is finally aged for six months in stainless steel tanks on its lees. Exopto means, in Latin, "to desire strongly, waiting with great enthusiasm". It is a word that sums up the team spirit in the cellar.
It was founded in 2003 by Tom Puyauber in the town of Laguardia.
La 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.
Bodegas Exopto is the project of a Frenchman from Bordeaux, Tom Puyaubert, a barrel seller passionate of La Rioja, its vineyards and its culture. The main idea of his project is based on making different wines within the historic context of Rioja: wines with more colour and freshness, with better expression of the fruit, and with a finer adaptation of the oak. It is the perfect evidence of a complex balance between modernity and tradition, where the balanced assemblages of the traditional red varieties of Rioja, Tempranillo, Graciano and Grenache, comprise the expression of his wines.
