General information

This wine has been made with grapes of the Tempranillo and Graciano varieties, from the old vineyard that surrounds the Finca de Torrea, where the facilities of the Marques de Riscal wineries are currently located. The land is the classic clay-calcareous soil of Rioja Alavesa that has historically provided the best qualitative results.
The harvest, carried out by hand and in small capacity boxes, passes through the selection tables, before proceeding to its destemming and crushing. Subsequently, the fermentation is carried out in small Allier wooden vats, at a temperature that does not exceed 25ºC with the intention of preserving the fruity characters as much as possible. The extraction is carried out with gentle pump-overs and a short maceration, in order to maintain the finesse, elegance and freshness necessary for a pleasant and persistent palate.
After malolactic fermentation, the wine remains in French Allier oak barrels for 18 months, and after a short period of refining in the bottle, the wine is released on the market. It is a different style from the wines that Marqués de Riscal had traditionally made.

Tasting Notes Finca Torrea

Covered cherry-colored wine with hardly any symptoms of evolution. On the nose it is intense, with notes of black fruit, spices and light toasted nuances. In the mouth it is elegant and well-structured, round, long and with a fresh and fruity finish.
