Discreet flavours that develop nicely with air to reveal lovely notes of hedgerow fruit, spice and balsam. Quite full bodied and very mellow, velvety and understated, with fine, dusty tannins and unobtrusive oaking.

Shows best with good food - something like Lancashire hotpot or beef and potato stew with saffron would be perfect.

Exeo's "Letras Minusculas" (Lowercase Letters) Rioja is the little brother (not that little) of Cifras Rioja. Made from a classic Rioja recipe of Tempranillo, Garnacha and high-quality but little-seen Graciano, it is fermented in large French oak vats before being transferred to smaller French oak barriques for the malolactic fermentation (MLF, don't you know), and then to different French/American barriques for further finessing. 

Bodegas Exeo is a project of artisan Alavesa house Tierra Agricola, based in the foothills of the Cantabrian mountains. The 25 year-old vineyard - La Hueta - is planted on shallow clay soils on a steep, south-facing slope that is perfect for heat-loving Garnacha. Riojas are released ready to drink and don't need extra bottle ageing.
