Characteristics of Coto Real Reserva
Coto Real Reserva is a red wine from D.O. Rioja produced by El Coto de la Rioja. This wine has been produced mainly from Tempranillo, small percentages are from Mazuelo and Garnacha Tinta. The grapes come from old vines with a high quality potential in Rioja Alta. The grapes are picked and placed in 350 kg crates; they are preserved until they reach the winery, where they are then chosen from a sorting table. The maceration and alcoholic fermentation occurs in small stainless steel deposits of 100hl with daily pumping and long maceration. The malolactic fermentation takes place in barrels. They have selected various barrels types from particular origins, barrels that have been toasted and from coopers, which without doubt contributes to the complexity of the wine. The aging process takes place in the barrel for 20 months. There is no filtration and afterwards it is refined in the bottle for two years before it is released onto the market.
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.
Since its beginnings in 1970, the winery El Coto de Rioja has followed a policy of constant reinvestment that has not only meant doubling the size of its facilities, but also significantly increasing the extension of its own vineyard and the number of barrels for the ageing of its wines. In addition, the use of state-of-the-art technology has managed to harmonise the dimension, production volume and quality of the products with the aim of producing more and also achieving continuous improvements in their quality levels.
