Tempranillo and Mazuelo.
18 hectares of vineyards selected in different plots of San Vicente De La Sonsierra, at 530 m of average altitude.
Manual harvest in October.
12 days maceration. Controlled fermentation that that ends at less than 25ºC.
14 months of aging in New and second use French oak barrels (40%) and East (60%). A total of 312 barrels of 225 litres are produced.
Visual: intense cherry color with garnet tones in edging, high vivacity and brightness.
Nose: the aromas of black fruits are predominant, accompanied by balsamic and mineral notes that give it a great depth. It is a very intense and complex nose, with tones of retama, forest and other sweet notes from its aging in barrels.
Mouth: fresh, very enveloping and very persistent. It combines the amplitude of the Tempranillo variety with the acidity and tension of the Mazuelo. A wine of enormous complexity and full of nuances, the result of a precise combination in the mosaic of old vines that houses the municipality of San Vicente.
Although we have explored a lot, in Vintae we never lose sight of our land because here, in Rioja, we have learned almost everything we know. With Bodega Hacienda López de Haro we wanted to recover the authentic essence of Rioja, its wines nos, the classics that made this region great because they represented elegance.
But if we wanted to create current wines it was not enough to stick to tradition. For this reason, in the Hacienda López de Haro collection, the historic nura riojana joins the personality of the excellent quality grapes of our old vineyards to create authentic contemporary classics.
To locate our winery we chose the historic town of San Vicente De La Sonsierra, in the heart of the DOCA Rioja, North by the Sierra Cantabria and South by the River Ebro. The microclimate of the area and its clay-calcareous soils generate the perfect conditions for the vineyard, especially for the Tempranillo grape, the Queen variety of the area.
