Viñedos del Contino was created by Cvne and the family owners of the state in 1973, establishing the “château” concept in the Rioja region. The estate embraces vineyards and wines, and is rooted in an ancestral home inside a bend in the Ebro river. Its wines are made exclusively from the stocks planted on its 62 hectares located in Laserna, near the town of Laguardia in the Rioja Alavesa wine making region.
What The Critics Say
91/100 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
"Bright ruby. Ripe cherry and black currant scents are complemented by suggestions of pipe tobacco, mocha and candied flowers. Plush, round and sweet in style, offering ripe dark fruit flavors and a suggestion of vanilla. Pliant tannins provide shape to the finish, which leaves suggestions of fruitcake and mocha behind. This rich wine could handle the most full-flavored red meat preparations."Drink 2019 - 2025
Winemaker notes on current vintage
"Ruby red color, clean and medium to high layer. In nose intense ripe plum, sweet and fresh aromas, mint and licorice. In mouth gourmand and fruity. The alcoholic strength is well balanced with freshness and length."
