Parker über: Rioja CVNE Imperial Gran Reserva

-- Parker: The classical 2016 Imperial Gran Reserva was produced with a blend of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo from grapes that were picked between October 10 and 25 with good ripeness, delivering a wine with 14.5% alcohol after fermenting in small oak vats followed by malolactic in concrete and two years in barrel and three in bottle. I was quite surprised, because the wine was quite closed and needed energetic swirling and time in the glass to reveal its true colors. It has more stuffing and finesse than the reserva. 2016 was a very good vintage, with freshness and balance to develop nicely in bottle. The tannins are very fine, and the wine is tasty and long. 50,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2019. 95/100

Bodegas Contino

Die Bodegas Contino liegt in Laserna auf Schwemmland mit viel Kalkeinsprengseln und Kieseln nahe des Ebro, in einer Flussschleife unterhalb Laguardias in der Rioja Alavesa, der vom Terroir und Mikroklima klar besten Region der Rioja und damit Spaniens.
