D.O.Ca. Rioja (La Rioja)
El Pacto is a red wine from the D.O La Rioja, produced by Bodega Classica. This is a single variety wine, made exclusively with Tempranillo grapes, a classic variety of the region.
The climate of the region is excellent for the cultivation of vineyards, with adequate moisture, not very abundant rainfall, concentrated in winter periods, a good ventificación and uneven terrain that builds countless slopes and terraces.
The grapes used to produce this wine come from old vines that are over 70 years old. The vineyards are located in riojan Sonsierra region and are organically cultivated, helping preserve the character of the surrounding environment. The harvest is usually carried out at the beginning of October, although this does depend on the vintage. After being quickly transported back to the winery, the bunches pass through a selection table, where only the best quality grapes are selected to make this wine.
Before being bottled and placed onto the market, this wine is aged for 14 months in French oak barrels. The result, an intense and surprising wine, which is corpulent and fresh.
Bodegas Classica is a project bought to us by the founders of Hacienda López de Haro. The winery looks to produce wines using traditional methods, and is currently home to 5,000 barrels where they age their wines.
