The aroma of cherry-red wine is extremely Berry, with the nuances of cherry and plum. Red fruits are well in line with oakmoss notes such as Mocca coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Maturing in cask gives the wine a good body, roundness, average acidity, and soft aftertaste. A medium-packed, soft, exciting and beautifully finished wine represents a modern Rioja compared to other El Coto wines. The wine has matured a year in American oak containers.
It is perfect for enjoying yourself or lamb and pork, grilled dishes as well as poultry meat, appetizers, and cheeses.
The El Coto de Rioja wine cellar represents a more modern line of classical Rioja wine style. The winery is founded in 1970, and today was El Coto viinamarjapõllud Rioja in all kvaliteedipiirkondades – D. O. Ca. Rioja Alavesa, Rioja Alta and Rioja Baja. Although the dominant vine variety is Rioja’s Tempranillo, the berries of Graciano, Garnacha and Mazuelo (Carinena) are also added to the wine. The soil of Rioja is quite diverse, with iron and limestone clay varying between different sedimentary rocks and layers resulting from erosion. The climate is predominantly Continental with low rainfall and rich sunshine.
