Characteristics of Coto de Imaz Reserva

Coto de Imaz Reserva is a red wine from DO Rioja, it is a varietal Tempranillo. It is produced by the winery El Coto de Rioja, one of the best known Spanish wineries, whose production dates back to 1970.

Coto de Imaz Reserva is a classic wine from La Rioja. Their vineyards are located in Rioja Alta, in the town el Cenicero, where clay-limestone soil predominates.

The climate is continental with Mediterranean influences, extreme temperatures and few hours of sunshine. This type of soil and climate favours the subsequent aging of wine as it provides a very good acidity and grape extract.

Once the harvest and selection of grapes is complete, Coto de Imaz Reserva undergoes alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. It is later macerated for 18 days with frequent pumping to find a balance between fruit and extraction.

It finally spends 17 months aging in American oak barrels of 225 litres. It then ages in bottle 3½ years before going to market.

In addition to good ratings it has received, Coto de Imaz Reserva was honoured in 2014 with a gold medal at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles.

Tasting notes Coto de Imaz Reserva

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.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
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.
Sight Dark cherry colour with pale ruby red edges. Clean and bright. Abundant thin tears. Nose It shows medium-high intensity nasal aromas. This wine shows the aromas provided during the ageing followed by notes of fruit, released along with some light spicy and refreshing balsamic hints. Taste The palate is soft and tasty, with a good balance between alcohol, acidity and tannins. Long finish that leaves a slightly spicy aftertaste.

Taste Coto de Imaz Reserva 2008 shows a tasty and mellow mid palate, with a good balance between alcohol, acidity and tanicity. It has a long finish which leaves a slightly spiced aftertaste. A very pleasant, elegant and easy-drinking classic red wine from La Rioja.
Sight Intense cherry red colour with maroon edges. Clean and bright wine with slightly dense and thin tears. Nose Gradually, the typical notes provided during the ageing appear and elegant toasted and many creamy aromas of spices are noticed (vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa and hints of tobacco). When it opens up, there is an explosion of notes of ripe and expressive fruit on its light and subtle balsamic background. Taste Soft attack, with a velvety and tasty mid palate. The aromas felt in the nose appear again, more balanced. Good and fair acidity and nice tannins. Long finish that leaves a slightly spicy aftertaste. A very nice, elegant and easy-drinking classic wine from La Rioja.
Sight Cherry color tile, very frequent in the red reserva wines.
Nose Aroma with light notes of wood where fruit excels slightly. Taste Tasty, tannic and fresh fruit, pleasant, with more power than El Coto Crianza.
