Contino - Rioja Reserva 2016


A pioneer of the single vineyard wine concept in Rioja, Viñedos del Contino was born in 1973 as a partnership between the Pérez Villota family, owners of Finca San Rafael (Rioja Alavesa) and a group of Cvne directors. The idea of making wine from a single terroir was unheard of in Rioja, where mixing grapes from different areas in the region was the norm. With this attitude in mind (and taking into account the quality of its wines since its early days) Contino must be seen as one of the instigators of the Rioja wine revolution and, together with Remelluri, as the leading advocate of the château concept in the appellation.

Wine produced from well-selected grapes, in perfect ripeness and manually harvested from our own vineyards around the plot Finca de San Rafael.

Ruby red color wine. In nose, intense ripe plum, sweet and fresh aromas, mint and licorice. In mouth, it is gourmand and fruity. The alcoholic strength is well balanced with its freshness and length.
