Characteristics of Contino Reserva

Una vez la uva despalillada, pasa por una primera fermentación, una larga maceración y una fermentación maloláctica en depósitos de acero. Reposa 24 meses en barricas de diversos años de roble americano (40%) y de roble francés (60%). Envejecimiento en botella durante un mínimo de 12 meses.
Recomendamos decantar una hora antes de servir.

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.
