Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

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.

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.
