Winemaker's Notes:

Made from a special selection of Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Graciano grapes and only produced in exceptional vintages. A tawny colored red wine due to its long aging, aromas of vanilla, cinnamon and cloves lead to a smooth oakness and rounded finish leaving a lingering velvety taste.

About Campo Viejo:

The old Campo Viejo wine cellar, founded in 1967, has given way to the Juan Alcorta Bodega, named after its founder. Located in LogroƱo, on the old road to Fuenmayor, the bodega is built on a plateau planted with vines and has panoramic views of the Ebro Valley and the Sierra de Cantabria mountains. It is situated right in the heart of La Rioja, the most prestigious growing region in Spain.

Whole grape clusters are 100% gravity fed, without undergoing any type of pressure, which could adversely affect the quality of the wine. This gentle, painstaking winemaking process makes it possible to obtain smooth, harmonious wines, with lots of concentrated fruit aromas and flavors.
