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

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
