Product Information
Sales Information

Opaque purple. Deep dark fruit liqueur aromas are strongly influenced by vanillin oak and roasted coffee, with a spicy cracked pepper quality adding energy. Bitter cherry and blackcurrant flavors are impressively structured and complicated by exotic floral pastille and Asian spices. Creamy dark berry flavors define the long, sappy finish. Very modern but also very seductive.

A mix of Graciano (60%), Tempranillo (30%) and Garnacha (10%)

Hand-Picked in 12 kg cases from vines between 50 and 90 years old. Hand destalked and selected berry by berry. Fermented in oak vats with 21 days maceration. Malolatic fermentation in barrels. 18 months in new French oak barrels (225 l.) Aged on lees

The Vineyard

The main idea behind the project is to produce different wines within the historical context of La Rioja: wines with more colour and freshness, better fruit expression and a finer contribution from the oak. All the wines produced at Bodegas Exopto are blends of the three principal Rioja grape varieties. Depending on the type of wine, Garnacha will be used for its fruit, Graciano for its freshness and Tempranillo for its structure.

Bodegas Exopto, located in Laguardia, demonstrates to perfection a complex balance between modernity and tradition: the various parcels of vineyards are aged between 30 and 90 years and the winery’s tanks are made of oak and concrete, traditional and very fine quality materials that allow the wine to express itself and develop a great complexity of aromas and flavours
