"A creamy, full-bodied red with plum and berry character. Nice purity of fruit to this. It’s full-bodied and layered with polish and beauty. Lovely tannins here. Drink or hold."

"The red 2019 Bozeto de Exopto is a blend of 50% Tempranillo from Ábalos with the Mediterranean touch of 40% Garnacha and 10% Graciano from Alfaro to add freshness. He wants the wine to express the Garnacha character, and it does but in a subtler way than if it was a varietal bottling. But all the grapes seem nicely integrated and complement each other. The wine fermented in a combination of stainless steel, concrete vats and used barriques, where it matured for six months. 2019 is a warmer, Mediterranean vintage, and the wine is soft and approachable, juicy and fruit driven. 75,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2019, earlier than in cooler years."
"Bozeto means "sketch" or "outline" and as the name implies it is their entry level wine. The wine is a fruity easy drinking introduction to their wines, philosophy and mix of Rioja's 3 principle grape varieties.
A deep red colour, dense and bright in appearance. Aromas of red fruits (cherry and strawberry) with mineral and floral touches. A luscious palate, strawberry and cranberry flavours supply a sweetness that contrasts with the pleasant acidity. Very elegant and a fruity, long finish." - Winery
