deAlto Amo La Planta Magica Garnacha Viñas Viejas 2019

deAlto Amo La Planta Magica Garnacha Viñas Viejas 2019


DOCa Rioja, Spain

Producer: deAlto

An unashamedly contemporary style of rioja that relies not on oak or age but on quality of fruit and a subtle, nuanced approach to winemaking.

What marks out this wine is the quiet, brooding intensity on the nose that gives way to a rich, yet lean palate of wild, dark cherry, warm spices, cranberry and liquorice. The spice from the french oak is integrated and supporting without dominating. Spectacular fruit with huge reserves of energy are the signature of this remarkable new expression of Rioja. 

La Planta Magica is named after the Mistletoe to be found in the almond trees that surround this old, bush trained Garnacha Vineyard. Close to the town of Aldeanueva in the Rioja Oriental, this small vineyard has beautifully balanced vines that yield very small quantities of fruit. A remarkable vineyard just waiting to be rediscovered as one of the jewels of Rioja. 

Detailed information on this wine is available here.
