Characteristics of Contino Graciano
Manual double harvest in early September (day 15) with optimum ripeness, in the first harvest those clusters that do not meet the required quality were separated. Fermentation in French oak vats of 100 hl. at temperatures of 28 º to 30 º C for 8 days, malolactic fermentation took place in French oak barrels and during the aging, the wine remained in French and Hungarian oak casks for 13 months, completing a process of reduction of one year in bottle.
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.
Viñedos del Contino is situated in La Rioja Alavesa, on the banks of the Ebro River. Inspired by the French ‘Châteux´, Burgundian `clos` and Californian ‘single vineyard`, the wines produced here are made only from the plots inside the estate. Viñedos del Contino is currently part of the Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España (CVNE) group.
