Wine Description:
Alegre Valgañón Tinto is a premium red wine produced by Bodegas Valgañón in the Rioja region of Spain. The wine is made from a blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes grown in the high-altitude vineyards of the Sierra de la Demanda mountain range. The vineyards are situated on steep slopes with poor soils, which results in low yields and high-quality grapes. The winemaking process involves traditional techniques such as hand-harvesting, fermentation in stainless steel tanks, and aging in French oak barrels for 12 months. The resulting wine is a complex and elegant expression of Rioja, with notes of red fruit, spices, and vanilla. Alegre Valgañón Tinto is a perfect choice for those who appreciate the finesse and character of a well-crafted Rioja wine.

Wine Expert Note:

This Alegre Valgañón Tinto is a full-bodied, vibrant red wine from Spain's Ribera del Duero region. Its deep ruby hue is accompanied by aromas of ripe red fruits, sweet spice, and a hint of smokiness. On the palate, the wine is lush and smooth, with flavors of dark cherry and berry balanced by soft tannins and a silky finish. Enjoy this wine with grilled meats, stews, or aged cheeses.

A pure Tempranillo from the DOCa Rioja, grown in vineyards between 500 and 800 meters above sea level, characterized by clay, limestone, and partly iron-rich soils. The Tempranillo Elaboracion Especial is fermented in American oak barrels, with regular punching down of the cap promoting the extraction of intense aromas and color pigments from the berries. After nine months of barrel aging and a further six months of bottle aging, it reveals warm, seductive notes of red fruits, cocoa, and chocolate on the nose. On the palate, it presents itself as round and harmonious, with juicy cherry fruit and subtle spicy nuances of cinnamon and licorice, perfectly integrated with warm wood aromas for additional richness and length.
