Characteristics of Contino Viña del Olivo

Contino Viña del Olivo is a red wine made by Bodega Contino. To make their wines stand out, and to pay tribute to a old olive tree found in the surroundings of the vineyards, they created Viña del Olivo, a modern but refined wine.
This wine is made with Tempranillo (88%) and Graciano (12%) grapes, vigorously selected. The grapes selected are at their optimum ripening point and are picked by hand from the winery's vineyards surrounding the Finca de San Rafael. After being destemmed, they ferment in 10,000 litre wooden vats.
The wine ages for 17 months in French and American oak barrels. It then stays in the bottle for a year, ageing in the cellars until going onto the market.
Alcohol: 14.0%
Serve at 16ºC
We recommend decanting before consumption
Pairing
Game stew, Sheep cheese, Cold meat, Grilled red meats, Stew

Tasting notes Contino Viña del Olivo

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.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
