Finca La Emperatriz Terruño is a red wine from Rioja prepared by Viñedos Hermanos Hernáiz (Finca La Emperatriz). This winery is located in Baños de Rioja, one of the highest places in La Rioja Alta.

Finca La Emperatriz Terruño is an estate winery whose grapes come from a single plot, they seek to express all the uniqueness of the terroir.

Finca La Emperatriz Terruño is 100% made from Tempranillo grapes. The grapes come from a place where a precision viticulture has occurred for years, resulting in a Tempranillo which expresses its full fruitiness.

Tasting notes Finca La Emperatriz Terruño

After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca 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.
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 Intense dark red with maroon trim. Clean and bright. Nose Medium to high intensity with aromas of ripe red fruit (raspberries, cherries, strawberries and plums). Floral notes and a balsamic background. Taste Powerful, intense and full-bodied entry. Very fruity and expressive, with good acidity and ripe tannins. Medium-long finish.
Sight Raspberry red, with an almost black core and maroon rim. Brilliant. A dyed tear. Slow and rich. Nose A clean and clear nose, showing the complexity and expression of Tempranillo grapes. A broad range of fresh fruit sensations shines through. Tantalising notes of vanilla and flint. A clear expression of the terroir. Taste Intense, tantalising and powerful on the palate. A powerful and full-bodied attack with ripe nuances. Long and pleasant. A special, fruity finish.
Sight Red raspberry wine, almost black heart, still shows shades of violet. Nose One sees a complicity between the ripe fruit, black plum, cherry with roasted tones of wood, the base comes with peppery notes and a sweet memory of cream and biscuit, which contributes to this wine has a rich aroma. Taste In the mouth it is structured, lively and with great length.
