Bodega Alegre Valganon, Rioja DOCa, Spain 2016

Regular price $ 22.00

The 2016 Tinto is a blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha, fermented with indigenous yeasts and some 15% of the stems in the case of Tempranillo and almost 30% in the case of the Garnacha. The wine matured in a combination of 225- and 500-liter oak barrels. It has the advantage of the 2016 vintage, with floral aromas and citrus freshness (it makes me think of blood orange). It has perfectly integrated oak and fine tannins and feels clean (which is how they described the character of the Tempranillo from one of the main vineyards). It's very pleasant and very good for what it is.
