THE WINES / COTO ANNIVERSARY SELECTION

VINTAGE 2008 :
Harvest ranked as EXCELLENT. The winter saw lots of snow and rainfall, continuing into the spring. A cycle of good weather with cooler nights began on 11 August, contributing to excellent ripening. The harvest started on 15 September in the Rioja Baja, reaching the Rioja Alta in mid October and ending on 9 November.

VARIETY:
100% Tempranillo from our own vineyards in Cenicero (Rioja Alta).

YIELD PER HECTARE :
40 Hl./Ha.

VINIFICATION :
In stainless steel vats for 21-30 days, with just the right maceration necessary to get the balance between fruit and extract. The selection of this wine is made during the vinification process, seeking wines which we feel display the ideal ageing potential.

AGEING :
18 months in 225-litre, American-oak casks and a further 20 months in the bottle before release for sale.

TASTING NOTES :
Cherry-brick red, aroma with oaky hints which slightly dominate the fruit. Juicy and pleasant with good tannin balanced with fresh fruit.

FOOD PAIRING :
Combines perfectly with duck confit, game, red meat or roast lamb. Best served at 16-18ºC (60.8-64.4ºF).
