Exeo Letras Minusculas Rioja 2015

18.99

Description

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.

Exeo’s “Letras Minusculas”  Rioja is the little brother 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 to undergo malolactic fermentation, and thentransfered to French/American barriques for further finessing.

Shows best with good food – beef and potato stew would be perfect.

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.
