Characteristics of Luis Alegre Parcela Nº 5

Parcela Nº 5 is an ecological red wine from La Rioja produced by Bodegas Luis Alegre. This is a single varietal Tempranillo, a classic variety of the region.

The grapes come from vines over 45 years old located in the Rihondillo Villa, in the Natural Park of Las Lagunas de Laguardia.

For the cultivation of the vineyards, no synthetic chemicals are used, the soils are limestone and stony, encouraging the grapes to grow with a great personality.

The harvest is manual and the clusters are selected. After this, grapes are fermented and macerated with their skins for at least 20 days in stainless steel conical tanks of 7,000 kilos. After this process, Parcela Nº 5 passes into chosen barrels of French and American oak without any filtration, where it remains for about 14 months.

Parcela Nº 5 is finally bottled after a slight filtration and lies for about 6 or 8 months in bottle before being marketed.

Serve at 16.0ºC

Tasting notes Luis Alegre Parcela Nº 5

High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
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 Lucid and bright cherry with some purple hues. Nose High intensity. Spicy and intense balsamic notes accompanying notes of red fruits. Touches of wood and mineral background. Taste The entry is voluminous and tasty, harmonious and fresh. Good acidity, tannins are ripe and deep. The finish is long and pleasant with toasty notes.
Sight A cherry colour. Intense, bright and very lively, with slight violet reflections. Nose A highly intense and very fragrant nose. Ripe red fruit is accompanied by spices, intense balsamic notes, fine wood and a deep mineral background. Taste After a bulky attack, this wine shows a tasty, balanced and fresh palate. It has a nice, sharp and integrated acidity, noticeable, but ripe, polished tannins and a long, pleasant finish with an aftertaste of persistent nicely toasted notes.

    Imágenes y situación D.O.Ca. Rioja

    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.
