Rioja Alavesa Wine

for this region?

 

This area in the northern part of the region is the smallest of the La Rioja subzones. The high altitude of the vineyards with cool temperatures coupled with soil rich in clay and limestone contribute to produce wine that is deep, complex and ageworthy.
 
Most of the wine is red, and produced from Tempranillo. This is often blended with Garnacha, Graciano and/or Mazuelo. Some dry and fruity white wine is also produced from Viura (Macabeo).
