Contino Reserva

Contino Reserva

Ref: A077310

Haro, Rioja Alavesa

Ruby red with medium intensity. Well structured on the nose, full and deeply fruity with good wood integration and fine spices. The palate is well balanced, with ripe fruit, good acidity and a fresh long complex finish.

Tempranillo 85% Graciano 10% Mazuelo 5%

The Contino wines are produced solely from the vineyards on the estate; 62 hectares located within a meander of the river Ebro near the village of Laserna and close to the town of Laguardia in the province of Rioja Alavesa.

In the times of the Reyes Catolicos (Ferdinand of Aragon and Elisabeth of Castille) the distinction of 'Contino' was conferred on each of the continuation of the Life Guards who protected the monarchs and their family. The Contino Pedro de Samaniego was rewarded with the estate of Laserna from which the Contino estate derives its name. The Contino labels show a figure of Saint Gregory, founder of the Benedictine monastic order and the patron saint of vine growers.

The Contino wines are based on a classic range of Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva, wines of unique character but of more traditional style than the more classic structured wines of Viña del Olivo and the single varietal Graciano.

Contino wines is owned and distributed by CVNE.

Extremely elegant wines that have undergone a surprisingly long bottle-ageing process that gives them a roundness not often found at this level.
