The Story

The winery was established in 2005 near Labastida, in the heart of Rioja Alavesa, based on a deep recognition of the region's winegrowing potential, which makes it an ideal place to produce high-quality wines that display remarkable personality and mature beautifully. Altos Ibéricos is named after Alto Otero, the beautiful enclave that is home to the winery.

DOC: Rioja

Grape variety: Tempranillo

Origin: This noble wine from the Torres family, made with the tempranillo varietal, is aged for 12 months in oak barrels and for a long time in the bottle. Thus, the wine speaks to us of the land it comes from and its origins with aromas of forest fruits and spices. On the palate, it speaks to us of the passing of time, smooth, elegant and long.

Tasting notes: Dark cherry red color, very opaque. Intense and fragrant, with exquisite fruit (raspberry jam) and spicy (green peppercorn) aromas, and a pleasant note reminiscent of toasted bread. Warm on the palate, with velvety, juicy tannins well rounded by oak aging.

Serving suggestions: Conceived as the perfect match for the latest trends in avant-garde cuisine, particularly all types of tapas prepared with fresh ingredients; red meat, oily fish, and cheese. Equally exquisite with all kinds of cured meats made from Iberian pork. Serve at 14–16°C
