D.O.Ca. Rioja (La Rioja)
Torre de Oña is a red wine from La Rioja produced by the Torre de Oña winery. It is a blend in which Tempranillo (95%) is blended with a small amount of Mazuelo (5%).
The harvest is manual and is carried out in boxes of 20 kilos. The different plots are vinified separately.
Harvested grapes undergo a process of pre-fermentation and cold maceration.
Subsequently, 80% of Torre de Oña undergoes malolactic fermentation in new oak barrels (French and American). Thus the wine gets a more stable colour and aromas with more character.
Torre de Oña ages in French oak barrels -40% of which are new and 35% of which have held two wines- and the remaining 25% in Caucasus for 20 months.
During this time three artisanal rackings are made.
Torre de Oña is finally bottled using traditional methods before going to market.
La Torre de Oña winery was born in 1985, when Don Leandro Vázquez, a businessman with Cuban roots and great lover of wine, launched this particular dream.
Torre de Ona has belonged, since 1995, to the La Rioja Alta Group, this is one of the largest producers of wines in Spanish territory.
