Selection of vineyards located in the Sonsierra. Mostly clay-calcareous soils.
manual harvest in October.
10 days maceration. Controlled fermentation at 28ºC.
6 months in barrels of various uses of French and American oak.
Visual: intense cherry red with violet hues typical of his youth.
Nose: predominant aromas of forest fruits (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries) accompanied by spicy notes and licorice, characteristic of the variety. Mineral notes of grain and certain hints of vanilla and leaf litter are also perceived to increase the aromatic complexity.
Palate: it has good structure, typical in this variety. It also has good acidity that generates a great persistence. Although it is a structured wine, it has a very pleasant and enveloping character, fruit of its maturation during its passage through barrel. At the end leaves memories of fruit typical of a young wine.
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.
