deAlto amo 2009,nbsp; Crianza Product of Spain - 6 x 750ml Bottles
Region: Rioja Spain
Grape Varietie Tempranillo and Garnacha
Winemaking Rioja enjoyed a very hot summer after a wet and cold winter and spring, although the lack of rain in August and first half of September caused worries that the grapes would not be able to develop fully. Rain came, however, in mid-September, and this, in turn, led to worries that the grapes would swell and become 'flabby' if the rains continued for too long. As it happened, the last days of September were dry and bright, and the main harvest started at around that time. The unique weather conditions meant that the vines had produced many more grapes than usual, and the Consejo Regulador decreed that a substantial amount should be left on the vine, to ensure that the official quota was not exceeded - one report suggests that some 80,000 kg had to be officially abandoned to ensure that quality and price were maintained. The harvest finished over the weekend of the 24th-26th October, just before the arrival of more rain and fog which could have caused further problems Fermentation in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature.
