Rioja

Rioja D.O.C., Denominacion of Origen Calificada (Qualified Denomination of Origin) is located in the center of Spain, straddling Navarre, the Basque Country and Castilla y Leon. Its capital is Logrono and its area of ​​63,000 hectares, is divided into three regions with very different climates: La Rioja Baja, La Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Alta. The vineyard plots come from the oldest and largest AOC in Spain. Soils are composed of clay, sand, pebbles and limestone. The red grape varieties most often found in Rioja wines are Tempranillo, Garnacha, Carià ± ena, Graciano and Mazuelo. The Tempranillo is the king of the region, it represents about 65% of the establishment, the Tempranillo vintages are bright and brilliant color, with a fine and intense aroma, and with a fruity, velvety, warm taste. palace. The result is a balanced wine. Concerning whites, we find Grenache Blanc, Malvoisie and Macabeu. The red wines of the region are characterized by a modest acidity, velvety tannins and typical vanilla aromas, due to an extended aging in American oak barrels. We can also find more fruity and juicy, with less marked woody notes.

At 12Bouteilles, we like the red wines of the Bodega Contador which have twice received the 100/100 mark by wine critic Robert Parker. We are seduced by the complexity and finesse of Predicador 2014, the elegance and richness of the Cueva Del Contador 2014 and Contador 2010, an absolutely exceptional wine, which has become a legend in Spanish oenology. These wines signed Benjamin Romeo are real wonders, to discover as soon as possible We have also selected the wines of Bodega Marques de Riscal, two magnificent Reserva and Gran Reserva de la Rioja.
