Professional Wine Reviews for Exopto Wine Cellars Rioja Bozeto De Exopto 2013

Rated 91 by Robert Parker
The sensational 2013 Bozeto is a blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano (a singular blend for Rioja) from an organic vineyard planted in 1980. Aged in French oak for nine months, it offers up beautiful black cherry and blackcurrant fruit intermixed with hints of strawberry jam, cedarwood and graphite. Medium to full-bodied and loaded with fruit, spice box and tobacco leaf characteristics as well as a rich, round, opulent mouthfeel, this superb, fruit-forward, luscious red can be consumed over the next several years.

Additional Information on Exopto Wine Cellars Rioja Bozeto De Exopto 2013

Winery: Exopto Wine Cellars

Region: La Rioja

The northern Spanish region of La Rioja has been producing many of Spain's finest and most characterful wines for generations, and is a historic region of country featuring several fascinating examples of ancient wine making practices. The wines of La Rioja stand up as some of the finest in the world, with devoted fans across the globe drawn to their rich flavors, relatively light body, and complex, deep and enticing aromas. Typically, wineries in La Rioja use the fine Tempranillo grapes which grow in abundance on the excellent soils of the region, and occasionally blend their wines with the highly aromatic Garnacha varietal, amongst others. There has also been an increase of interest in La Rioja's superb white wines in recent years, which usually utilize the Viura varietal grape and result in exquisite aged bottles.

Country: Spain

For over two thousand years, Spain has been responsible for much of Europe's wine production, making the very best of native grape varietals, and more recently experimenting with and perfecting wines made from imported grapes. Of course, the region of La Rioja is renowned world-wide for the quality and characteristics of its wines, which benefit greatly from the warm, dry continental climate of the area, and the fertile soils of the Ebro river basin. However, there is far more to Spanish produce than the complex, aromatic and earthy red wine of this region, as a result of the vast range of wine making traditions and practices, and terrains and climatic conditions found across the country. The region Castilla y Leon produces some of Europe's finest white wines, and the sparkling wines of Cava and the sherries of Jerez are firm favorites for wine lovers around the world.
