The winery is designed to fully respect the integrity and richness of the grapes. Located in the town of Samaniego and under the Sierra de Cantabria is Bodegas BAIGORRI, a glass box perfectly integrated into its surroundings, which emerges in an emblematic place in the Rioja Alavesa. Inside, the winery has the most advanced technology, the result of technical experimentation. It is framed within a process of continuous improvement and develops numerous research projects.
The great contribution of the Mazuelo variety makes this wine really different from what BAIGORRI has accustomed us to. A new definition of freshness and elegance in a red wine, highlighting fine tannins and a great aromatic complexity, fulfilling all the parameters of a pure avant-garde wine.
Red wine made with Mazuelo (85%), Tempranillo (10%) and other native varieties (5%) from old vines over 65 years old. After a manual and selective harvest, the destemmed grapes have been selected by hand, grain by grain, using vibration and weight selection tables. Long macerations and intracellular fermentations with native yeasts in oak vats. Natural pumping over and final extraction by gravity. Malolactic fermentation and aging for 14 months in new French oak barrels of various sizes (225l. / 500l. / 600l.).
High altitude vineyard located above 600 meters with a very poor clay-ferrous soil. Average age of the vines: >65 years. Driving system: glass. Sustainable viticulture with 100% manual work.
Intense red fruits with great complexity and harmony with nuances of black olives. In the mouth it is unctuous, elegant and persistent on the palate.
