Sonsierra Reserva 2014 is a deep, round and elegant wine. A great example of the reservas of La Rioja, with the prominence of the toasted and balsamic notes, which in this case do not cover the aromas of ripe red fruit.

Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Sonsierra Reserva is a red wine produced by the winery Bodegas Sonsierra in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, D.O.Ca. Rioja.

 

Bodegas Sonsierra was born in 1962, when more than 240 vinegrowers from San Vicente de la Sonsierra decided to create a cooperative where they could produce their own wines. This was the first cooperative in La Rioja to market its wines indicating the origin of each on the label.

Currently, Bodegas Sonsierra controls 516 hectares of their own vineyards, all of them belonging to their partners. These are planted with vines that go from 20 to 130 years old on average, distributed in 1500 small plots. Deep soils, mainly clayey-calcareous, planted only with native varieties. These vineyards are clearly influenced by a unique microclimate: mild temperatures all year round, with moderate rainfall, a good temperature difference between day and night in the ripening season, an excellent ventilation of the vines thanks to the winds that blow 80% of the days, and their South orientation with a certain tilt of the vines, favouring the plants' exposure to sunlight.

 

Sonsierra Reserva is a wine made from Tempranillo, from old vines that are over 40 years old, located on the foothill of the Sierra de Cantabria.

The harvest is performed by hand. Once it arrives at the winery, and after a slight crushing, it goes through a pre-fermentation maceration for 24 hours. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel deposits for 8 days at a temperature (max. 24ºC) with periodic pump-overs. Once it has ended, it goes through post-fermentative maceration for 24-48 hours. The malolactic fermentation takes place in concrete deposits. The ageing process lasts 12 months in American and French oak barrels and a minimum of 24 months in the bottle.

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.
