The producer of this wine is the young winemaker Sandra Bravo. She is part of a new generation of winemakers that want to give their wines character from their unique terroir and climate. The vines for this wine grow in 650 meters altitude in the most northern part of Rioja Alavesa, between the villages Labastida and Rivas de Tesoro. Thanks to the cool Atlantic winds, it is possible to produce wines without pesticides.
Vinification and terroir
The old vines are planted in clay and limestone which gives the wine a mineralic tone. The fermentation and maturation take place in steel tanks and amphoras.
This is an elegant red wine with a pleasant freshness and tones of violet, mediterranean herbs and delicate cocoa. Sandra Bravo’s tempranillo is produced in yearly batches of about 25.000 bottles depending on the vintage.
