Winemaker's Notes:

Zaco's vinification is based on achieving maximum fruit and freshness through cold pre-maceration, fermentation at lower than normal temperatures (24ºC) and two weeks' maceration. The wine is then left to mature in American and French oak until it is reaching its full potential.

Intense, bright cherry with violet hues. Initial dominant notes of black fruits,violets and liquorice followed by the underlying spicy notes of barrel ageing - vanilla and clove. Full-bodied with a long, fresh finish

About Vina Zaco:

Viña Zaco is the rebellious new Rioja from Bodegas Bilbainas—a Rioja with a contemporary twist. Zaco takes its name from one of the oldest vineyards in Bodegas Bilbainas in the Rioja Alta. But that's where Zaco's links with the past begin and end. With its abundance of fresh red berries, notes of liquorice and faint undertones of spice, Zaco is the ultimate modern expression of Rioja.
