Dinastia Vivanco:
The origins of the winemaking vocation of the Vivanco family date back to the year 1915; to the winemaking district of the village of Alberite, La Rioja, where Pedro Vivanco Gonzalez started to make wine for family use from his vineyards. In 1940 he bought a small wine cellar business in the same village. A curious caption had been carved over the door of that cellar reading: “he who walks by and is thirsty, if the door is, should enter and drink”.

Tasting Notes:

Oak barrel notes of cinnamon show up in the nose of this wine; coffee notes that derive from heavily toasted barrels are lurking too. But everything is in balance, even if the wine is still evolving, as black and red cherries and currants marry up with those toast notes. The tannins are relatively soft throughout, and there is a gentle lingering blueberry, barrel-tinged finish.

The vineyards are located in Rioja Alta. Fermentation took place in French oak vats giving the wine added depth. It was aged in a combination of French and American oak barriques for 16 months, followed by an additional 6 months in bottle.
