We say…..A lovely great value easy drinking red! A really stunning 5litre crowd pleaser, making it the perfect choice for sharing.

Coto de Imaz is a fine Rioja Reserva produced from grapes that are picked exclusively from El Coto’s estate in Cenicero in Rioja Altaby where the soils are limestone and clay.  It has a deep ruby red colour with orange tones and exhibits smoky nuances with hints of vanilla from ageing in the new American Oak barrels.  The wine tastes velvety and round, with smooth tannins and good acidity from the Tempranillo grapes. This Rioja is an easy drinking wine that is a real crowd pleaser, making it perfect for many occasions.

El Coto was founded in 1970 in Rioja Alavesa and has grown from modest beginnings into one of the best known Spanish Rioja producers. Today El Coto has over 700 hectares of vineyard in production across the three Rioja DOCa sub-zones of Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental. They also source grapes from all three areas, but mostly from Rioja Alavesa. Head winemaker César Fernandez oversees production, starting with hand picking into 350 kilogram crates to ensure the grapes arrive at the winery in pristine condition. Modern and intelligently designed, the emphasis in the winery is on temperature control and gentle handling of the grapes.

The best grapes are needed for the Imaz wines, because of the extended maceration on the skin which lasts for 3-4 weeks. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and then aged in 225 litre American oak barrels for at least 18 months prior to bottling. It spends at least a further 18 months in bottle before release.

Coto de Imaz wine is an easy drinking red wine that represents great quality at excellent value.  It is perfect for drinking on its own or served with all types of food.  Our Bordeaux Jeroboam, which contains a massive 5litres of red wine, is a fantastic crowd pleasing Rioja which would make an excellent choice for a party.  It is ready for drinking now but will probably continue to improve if kept for 7 years or so.  As a very generous gift for a friend, it certainly wouldn’t disappoint either!
