El Coto Coto de Imaz Reserva 2017 Rioja, Spain 

Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were sorted, destemmed and crushed. Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at 22-27°C, with maceration for around 18 days and frequent pump overs. After malolactic fermentation in tank, the wines were transferred to new, 225-litre American oak barrels where they were aged for 18 months before the final blend was assembled and bottled. After this, the wine was aged for a further 18 months in bottle before release. Vineyards in Rioja Alavesa, El Coto de Rioja has vineyards in Elvillar de Álava, Yécora and Oyón. Most of them are old vineyards, sheltered by the Sierra de Cantabria and divided into small plots of land, as is traditionally representative of the entire region. El Coto's Rioja Alta vineyard is located in Cenicero, at high altitudes that provide long hours of sun exposure.

100% Tempranillo. The wine is intense cherry in colour with ageing at the rim. On the nose, it has aromas of ripe fruit and hints of cocoa. On the palate, it has a round, velvety mouthfeel with ripe tannins and good acidity.
