Production

The Tempranillo grapes are sourced from certified organic vineyards at altitudes of around 500m. Ontañón have 57ha of low-yielding organic vineyards and 300 barrels dedicated to organic wines. There is a long maceration of the grapes (over 20 days) - fermentation at controlled temperatures. Ecológico spends five months in American and French oak barrels (new and 1-2 year old barrels).

Ripe plum and dark cherry fruit with a twist of spice and gentle tannins. A full-flavoured modern style of Rioja.

Perfect with roast chicken and pork, or grilled salmon
