Sierra de Toloño Rioja, Spain 2019
High up in the foothills of the Sierra de Toloño, in Rioja Alavesa, Sandra Bravo works in some of the oldest, and highest altitude vineyards in Rioja. She is always the first to harvest, usually around the 3rd week of September, and she decides when it's time by tasting the berries. On the palate red fruits abound with a slight floral and spicy notes. Well rounded with great acidity.
Grape: Tempranillo from a vineyard 600-700m above sea level
