Description

Details

El Coto was founded in 1970 in Rioja Alavesa and has grown from humble beginnings into one of the best-known Rioja producers.

Today El Coto has over 700 hectares of vineyard in production across the three Rioja DOCa sub-zones of Rioja Alta, Rioja Baja and Rioja Alavesa. This makes them the largest vineyard owner in Rioja and gives them great control of the quality of the grapes which go into their wines, the majority of which are sourced from their own vineyards. Their stand-out reds hail primarily from their original estate at Cenicero in the heart of Rioja Alta.

Vineyards
Coto Real is made from a blend of grapes sourced from the 50-year-old ‘Los Cuatros Viejos’ vineyard in Rioja Alta. The soils are limestone and clay.

Vinification
The must is fermented at 22-27º in stainless steel tanks over a period of 21-30 days. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel. The wine is then aged for 20 months in new American and French oak, followed by 16 months in bottle prior to release.
