Characteristics of Koden
Koden is a red wine from the Q.D.O. Rioja made by Bodegas Luis Alegre.
This wine is a single-varietal Tempranillo from vines that are between 6 and 8 years old. It is made by a pre-fermentation maceration at a low temperature, a technique that uses dry ice during the cold maceration to extract as many qualities from the grapes as possible. The wine then ages for six months in American oak barrels.

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.
The winery is located in a singular 4-floor circular building (two of the floors are underground) in the heart of the region of Rioja Alavesa. This winery has innovative and forward-looking facilities with the best technologies, which complements the work conducted in the vineyards. Their great wines are elaborated on the base of the two following statements: a strict grape-selection process (with selection tables straight in the vineyards) and a pioneer form of addressing wood. Their wines are produced under the D.O.C. Rioja, most of them out of the variety Tempranillo, although the varieties Viura, Malvasía, Grenache and Mazuelo are also grown.
