Although El Coto is a relatively young Bodega, it is already one of the Rioja Qualified Designation of Origin (D.O.Ca) leaders. In the domestic market, no sales promotions or publicity campaigns have been necessary for El Coto to silently become the preferred Rioja Crianza of the Spanish, whilst, in the international market, El Coto is present at the best tables and wine lists in some 50 countries.
100% Tempranillo from their own vineyards in Cenicero (Rioja Alta).
Brilliant ruby-red colour with tinges of brick red. Mature and elegant, its rich aromatic complexity is changing and subtle, revealing itself as the wine breathes. Toasted oak nuances and coconut give way to tertiary aromas (leather, damp earth), and red berries and dried raisins. Silky, rounded tannins and a complex, lingering aftertaste.
Ruth says “Plim, cassis & vanilla, traditional style. Insane value.”
