Bodegas Exeo ‘Cifras’ Rioja 2015

25.00

Description

Richly perfumed with heady scents of ripe raspberry, black cherry and pink peppercorn. The big, expansive wash opens up beautifully with air time to reveal intriguing nuances of leather, caramel and vanilla, alongside the juicy Grenache fruit.

100% Garnacha from the wild Sierra Cantabria aged in a traditional ‘egg’ vessel. Super Rioja!

Decant for an hour or two and try with walnut-crusted pork chops and figs.

Producer: Bodegas Exeo

Bodegas Exeo is a project of artisan Alavesa house Tierra Agricola (Tierra y Vino)  based in the foothills of the Cantabrian mountain. An initiative of Fidel Fernández Gibaja, who is followed by his sons Carlos, Fidel and his grandson Guillermo, the 24 hectare vineyard ‘La Hueta’ with some vines over a hundred years of age, is located in Labastida, Rioja Alavesa, in the shelter of the Sierra Toloñois.

The vines are planted on shallow clay soils on a steep, south-facing slope that is perfect for heat-loving Garnacha. All grapes are hand harvested and collected in small boxes to preserve their delicacy as they make the journey from fruit to wine.
