Tasting note:

With hints of spice and red fruits on the nose, de Alto is beautifully balanced and offers layers of red berry fruits on the palate, laced with vanilla and hints of mocha and liquorice.

About the wine:

The Tempranillo and Garnacha used for this wine come from the best vineyards around Azagra in Rioja Baja.

The vines are predominantly grown on clay-limestone soil, and minimal intervention is practised.

Grapes are all hand-picked in early October. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature for seventeen days, before undergoing malolactic fermentation.

30% of the wine has spent 6 months ageing in half American and half French oak, the other half maturing in concrete tanks until the final blend.
