El Coto Coto Real Rioja Reserva 2014
Region: Rioja, Spain

This wine is deep cherry red in colour with intense aromas of red forest fruits. These are accompanied by rich notes of cocoa and coffee. On the palate, the body is round, with firm, ripe tannins. It is a powerful, complex wine with a long finish.
Coto Real is made from a blend of grapes sourced from the 50-year-old ‘Los Cuatros Viejos’ vineyard in Rioja Alta. The soils are limestone and clay.
El Coto was founded in 1970 in Rioja Alavesa and has grown from humble beginnings into one of the best-known Rioja producers. Today El Coto has approximately 800 hectares of vineyard in production across the three Rioja DOCa sub-zones of Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental. This makes them the largest vineyard owner in Rioja and gives them great control of the quality of the grapes which go into their wines, the majority of which are sourced from their own vineyards.
