About the cultivation of the vines for Livius Garnacha

This wine is also produced with a lots of patients and passion. In fact, the used Garnacha grape grows and thrives in a natural but also selected environment. In this regard, the winery pays much attention to the quality of the soil. Furthermore, the yield of the vines is very low, which also lead to high quality. This is especially caused by the fact that the old vines were planted between 1915 and 1940. And, like with many other wineries, quality is the first priority.

How does Bodegas Alvia make the wine?

This wine is also pressed and fermented cold. Of course, again to preserve all the flavors. Afterwards the wine fermented again with 24°. And the refinement is carried out malolactically in the barrel. In regards to the maturation, the wine is aged for 18-24 months in new oak barrels of French, American and Hungarian oak. And like the other two siblings of the premium line Tempranillo and Graciano, an excellent Rioja with a lot of power but also elegance at the same time!
