"Bold blackberry, cherry and dark plum fruit flavors abound in this solid, energetic wine. The extended barrel aging is apparent with the hints of vanilla, tobacco and light roast coffee and gentle tannic structure. While full, plump and weighty, there is a beam of core acidity that gives the wine energy and lift with a long, smoky finish shaped by smooth, even tannins."
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
