The 2009 Capitosa spent 8 months in barrel. Earthy minerals, toast, Asian spices, black cherry, and blackberry aromas inform the nose of a sweetly-fruited, forward, easy-to-understand, savory Rioja that is an excellent value that will drink well through 2017. It affords a preview of the top cuvees of the outstanding 2009 vintage. Rating 88 - Drink to 2017 Jay Miller, Wine Advocate (JUN/2011)
Winery Tasting Notes
Intense garnet red with purple and violet glints. Clean and brilliant. Medium intensity of colour.
Fresh fruits with an elegant touch from the French oak casks. It is a very fruity wine that evokes the Tempranillo variety in aromas like red fruit, blackberry, blackberry bush, redcurrant and notes of liquorice.
Fresh, young, intense and nice. Well structured acidity with red fruits. Expressive and very well balanced.
This wine can be paired with the most casual food because it has enough body for any kind of meat, but it is also subtle for smoother meals. It combines with any pasta, salad and vegetables, as well as starters and meat in general.
