The prestige of a privileged land devoted to wine for more than two thousand years.
Rioja was the first Designation of Origin in Spain to earn Calificada status. This was in 1991.
A rigorous and effective control system makes Rioja synonymous with the highest quality.
Three production zones, each with a distinct personality: Rioja Alavesa, Rioja Alta and Rioja Orient
Certain to leave a mark on you. Wine is the connecting theme of all our routes.
Delve into the heart of our wines by knowing the history of our municipalities.
We tell you our stories and those of our wines.
Vineyard / Origin: Vineyards located in Tudelilla, in the group of parcels called “La Lastra Baja”.
Winemaking: Ortega Ezquerro Red is elaborated under the carbonic maceration system. This traditional method is very normal in some other parts of Rioja, but it is a great surprise in our region, in Tudelilla.
Without prior crushing, the bunches of grapes are put into stainless steel vats. This step is extremely carefully made as it is important to prevent the grapes from breaking. Maceration takes place from 8 to 10 days, fermenting at a controlled temperature of 24ºC approximately.
Tasting notes: This traditional method enhances remarkably fresh red fruit aromas and tones of violet flowers and licorice.
Our wine has clean and bright appearance, with a deep cherry-red colour and violet tones that shows its youth.
In the nose the wine is powerful, expressive and lively, with strawberry, raspberry and banana aromas, with a floral background.
In the mouth, it is flavorsome and balanced, full-bodied, with a very pleasant attack, fleshy and very long aftertaste.
Serving and Pairing Recommendations: Serving temperature between 12-15ºC. Perfect with red meats, game, stews, rice dishes, mushrooms, blue fish and cured cheeses.
Alcohol: Vol. 13.5%
Grape varieties: Tempranillo, Viura
