El Coto Real Reserva is a special winemakers selection only produced in the very finest vintages.
Terroir: Mainly Tempranillo, small percentages of Mazuelo and Garnacha Tinta. Grapes from our vines located in Rioja Alta. Very old vineyards with a great potential for quality. The vineyard Los Cuartos Viejos in Cenicero is a good example.
Vinification: Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano grapes are handpicked, and meticulously sorted prior to vinification at the winery. The juice sees extended skin contact and a cool vinification in order to extract, flavor, balance and structure prior to aging. The wine is aged in the cellars of El Coto for a period of 22 months in a combination of French and American oak followed by an additional 24 months in bottle prior to release.
Deep and intense cherry color. A complex nose of dark fruit wrapped in liquorice, sweet spices, creamy oak and chocolate. Velvety, with ripe tannins in the mouth, fruit driven with a long lasting aftertaste.
