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.
