D.O.Ca. Rioja (La Rioja)
Coto Real Reserva is a red wine from D.O. Rioja produced by El Coto de la Rioja.
This wine has been produced from Tempranillo. The grapes come from old vines with a high quality potential in Rioja Alta.
The grapes are picked and placed in 350 kg crates; they are preserved until they reach the winery, where they are then chosen from a sorting table. The maceration and alcoholic fermentation occurs in small stainless steel deposits of 100hl with daily pumping and long maceration. The malolactic fermentation takes place in barrels.
They have selected various barrels types from particular origins, barrels that have been toasted and from coopers, which without doubt contributes to the complexity of the wine. The aging process takes place in the barrel for 20 months. There is no filtration and afterwards it is refined in the bottle for two years before it is released onto the market.
