    "Saturated ruby. Lively, spice-tinged cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by an emerging floral overtone. Pliant and well-concentrated, offering juicy black currant and bitter cherry flavors and a sweetening vanilla flourish. Supple tannins lend shape to a long, spicy finish that echoes the cherry and floral notes.”"

    The vineyards for Vina Coterro are spread across the municipality of Alfaro in La Rioja on the fertile banks of the Ebro on the low slopes of the Yerga Mountain. This area offers a huge diversity of soil and microclimates, supporting a wide range of different grape varietals. This is a collaboration with Bodegas Burgo Viejo, Master of Wine Fernando Mora, and Valkyrie Selections - a classic, quality Rioja that is emblematic of the region
