Characteristics of Cifras

Cifras is a red wine produced by Bodegas Exeo in Labastida, D.O.Ca. Rioja.

Bodegas Exeo is an initiative carried out by Fidel Fernández Gibaja, followed by his sons Carlos, Fidel and his grandson Guillermo. Located in Labastida, the heart of Rioja Alavesa, it is only the continuity of a heritage of winegrowers that seeks to show the landscape, their vineyards and a way of working in their wines. A way of doing things that is committed to the quality of the grape and respect for the vineyard and its environment.

Bodegas Exeo has 24 hectares of its own vineyards, some of which are over 100 years old, all located in Labastida, protected by the Sierra Toloño mountain range. The entire vineyard is cultivated with the utmost respect for the soil structures and the identity of each variety, transmitting in each bottle all the character of this terroir clearly marked by the Atlantic climate.

Cifras is a red wine made with Red Grenache from an old vineyard, Viña Espílver, located on the foothills of Sierra Toloño. The soil is clayey and the lands are very steep.

The harvest is carried out manually and placed in small boxes. Once they arrive at the winery, the grapes ferment in concrete deposits with their lees and their corresponding batonnages. Then, the wine is aged for 12 months in egg-shaped deposits.

Tasting notes Cifras

This vintage, rated as "Very Good", was characterized by the hard frost that occurred when the vegetative cycle was beginning in mid-April, and by the subsequent drought. Except for these two weather events, the year passed normally, with the vintage displaying a perfect health status in the last phase of the cycle. The wines of this vintage are characterized by having a somewhat higher average graduation than 2016, with a very good aging capacity and a high percentage of fine and very identifiable wines.
Cifras 2015 is a juicy, fragrant and very fine wine. Heady on the nose, this vintage displays all the aromatic richness of the Grenache variety,with fresh red fruit and elegant notes of Mediterranean herbs. On the palate it is deep and mineral, with a lot of freshness that makes it lively and gives it a very lingering finish.
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.
