2013 Rioja Reserva Lopez de Haro Spain


When arriving at San Vicente de la Sonsierra from the neighbouring village of Briones, the River Ebro acts as a gateway to an area that has been considered for decades as the heart of the Rioja Designation of Origin: the Sonsierra. Upon crossing the River, San Vicente offers the site of a rich historical-artistic heritage, and at its left, on a hill, we can see the elegant building of Bodega Classica in perfect harmony with the villages profile.Bodega Classica has been designed and built strategically on top of a hill so it can benefit from a natural climate control, as it is mostly built underground, and even the vats have been chosen with different sizes to make wine from different plots of land and with large mouths to imitate the traditional winemaking method of lagos abiertos, where whole grapes are deposited in open vats and carbonic maceration takes place. The bodega has around 5,000 barrels in stock, mainly in French oak.
You get this lovely ruby red colour with an orange rim. Powerful on the nose with primary aromas of ripe fruit accompanied by complex spicy and balsamic notes and a slight touch of vanilla. Balanced on the palate, it is a round and unctuous wine with ripe and sweet tannins, providing the wine with a long aftertaste: an elegant Rioja classic.
