WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE

Wine from selected vineyards in Gimileo, at the heart of La Rioja Alta made only in years classified as «excellent» by the Consejo Regulador, the appellation body of La Rioja. Temperature-controlled fermentation takes place with long periods of maceration and gentle pumping-over to produce wine with considerable structure, tannin, concentration and colour, making ithighly suitable for a long period of ageing. This lasts for 26 months in American oak barrels with the periodic racking carried out traditionally using gravity to move wine from one barrel to another. The ageing process continues in the bottle, where the wine acquires the further refining needed before it can be sold. The nose and flavor of this Gran Reserva will improve in bottle during the following years.

ABOUT THE WINERY

SANTALBA, the bodega´s name, is a fusion of the first name and surname of its owner and founder: SANTIAGO IJALBA 

With its experience accumulated since 1964 in the elaboration and breeding of great Rioja wines, Santiago Ijalba decided to launch his own personal project, Bodegas SANTALBA. Since then the Bodega has maintained an absolutely familiar character and has the support of her children, Roberto and Laura Ijalba Pérez, which combines the wine tradition of the family to which it belongs, with an international wine education.
