Alegre Description

This is a blend of roughly 75% Tempranillo from the Obarenes zone, and 25% Garnacha from Cárdenas. The grapes are fermented primarily in wooden vats using at least 25% whole bunches, and given a 30+ day maceration. The wines are then aged in a mix of used French barriques and demi-muid. Once again, the blend of vivid fruit and intense mouthfeel is uncommon in wines from this era.

As Oscar has said, “We are not trying to make the greatest wine in Rioja. We only want to make a true wine—a wine that shows off our land, and all the knowledge that we’ve inherited from earlier generations.” This philosophy is very similar to that of another RWC producer, Maria Teresa Mascarello, and it’s not a coincidence that both estates’ wines have such striking identities.
