Cortijo Rioja Tinto
Bodegas Don Sancho de Londono owns 103 acres
of vineyards in Rioja Alta at an elevaton of 1,865 feet.
The continental Atlantic climate of moderately warm
days and cool nights ripens grapes slowly, optimizing
freshness, aromatics, fruit character and ripe tannins
in the wines. The soils of thin red clay, sandy
limestone with small particles of thin clay and alluvial
sediment, help the wines achieve a superior degree
of flavor complexity. Winemaker David Sampedro
began his career at Faustino, followed by stints at
Campillo and Mibal in Ribera del Duero.
