Contino Reserva

For Contino, nothing is more modern than a renewed classic. The Contino Reserva is an excellent example of this philosophy. Produced from a variety of micro-vineyards in the area surrounding Viñedos del Contino with distinct soil types (alluvial, clay-limestone, saline and sandy). In constant search of the perfect harmony between vineyards situated in the privileged environment of Viñedos del Contino.

Fermentation in small stainless steel and concrete tanks, enabling us to produce individual wines from each micro-vineyard according to optimum harvesting conditions.

TECHNICAL DETAILS

“Contino, the first "chateau" in Rioja, was first produced in 1973. Its wines are produced exclusively from the vineyards situated on its 62-hectare estate. The Contino vineyard surrounds an old manor house built on a meander of the Ebro River in Laserna, a small village in the municipality of Laguardia in the Rioja Alavesa region”
Vino Contino Viña del Olivo DESCUBRE MÁS Contino Viña del Olivo Vino Contino Viña del Olivo “Viña del Olivo aims to be the maximum expression of Contino's terroir as it is one of the few calcareous clay estates in Contino (the others are primarily alluvial) with a very high content of active limestone, a 5 to 7% south-facing slope, dry land, no herbicides, and organic fertilisation. A mineral wine for ageing that expresses its modernity with harmony and balance”
