For Contino, nothing is more modern than a renewed classic. The Contino Reserva is an excellent example of this philosophy. Produced from a variety of micro-vineyards in the area surrounding Viñedos del Contino with distinct soil types (alluvial, clay-limestone, saline and sandy). In constant search of the perfect harmony between vineyards situated in the privileged environment of Viñedos del Contino.
Fermentation in small stainless steel and concrete tanks, enabling us to produce individual wines from each micro-vineyard according to optimum harvesting conditions.
“Contino, the first "chateau" in Rioja, was first produced in 1973. Its wines are produced exclusively from the vineyards situated on its 62-hectare estate. The Contino vineyard surrounds an old manor house built on a meander of the Ebro River in Laserna, a small village in the municipality of Laguardia in the Rioja Alavesa region.”
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.
