The Colección Vivanco 4 Varietales is an excellent red wine cuvée full of elegance and complexity and is vinified from the grape varieties Tempranillo (70%), Graciano (15%), Garnacha Tinta (10%) and Mazuelo (5%).
In the glass, this wine presents itself to a wonderfully strong garnet red. The bouquet seduces with a powerful and complex play of aromas with notes of ripe, red and dark berries, floral elements, caramel tones, chocolate and vanilla from well-integrated wood. On the palate, this wine is fresh and lively, the tannins are soft and the long, elegant finish shows ripe berry aromas again.
The bottle was modelled on an 18th-century wine bottle exhibited at the Vivanco Museum of Wine Culture.
Vinification of the Colección Vivanco 4 Varietales
After carefully picking the grapes in the Spanish region of Rioja, the grapes are carefully selected, destemmed and pressed in the wine cellar. Temperature-controlled mash fermentation takes place in barriques with this wine. This red wine then matures for a total of 24 months in French oak barrels.
Food recommendation for the Colección 4 Varietales Vivanco
This dry red wine from Spain goes perfectly with fillet or roast beef with bittersweet sauce, but can also be combined with other dishes with red meats. We recommend decanting this wine at least one hour in advance.
