BAIGORRI De Garage
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 unique characteristics of the grapes used, as well as all the painstaking process that is followed, means that the production of this wine is limited, depending on the years and, therefore, this is the emblematic wine of the Winery.
Red wine made with Tempranillo grapes from old vines over 60 years old, cultivated in their own vineyards located in the municipality of Samaniego, Rioja Alavesa.
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 in contact with its fine lees and aging for 22 months in new French oak barrels.
Several micro-plots (<1 Ha.) located in the municipality of Samaniego, Rioja Alavesa with its characteristic very poor clay-calcareous soils. Average age of the vines: >60 years. Average altitude of the vineyards: approx. 600 meters. Conduction system: glass and glass trellis. Sustainable viticulture with 100% manual work.
Intense cherry colour, aromas of fresh fruit and stewed fruit, aromatic herbs, spices and minerals. Sensations of macerated fruit, tobacco, smoked and licorice. Very tasty and round on the palate with a great balance between the tannins of the wood and that of the grapes. Very long and persistent finish.
