Allende 2011 is the best-known wine of the house, combining elegance and complexity and showing it with its balsamic aromas and round tannins.
Despite producing wine since 1995, the winery's history dates back 30 years, when Miguel Ángel de Gregorio took over the historic vineyards of Marqués de Murrieta, the first producer of Rioja wine.

"The 2010 Allende Tinto is pure Tempranillo harvested after October 18 from vines averaging 45 years of age in Briones, fermented in inox (including malolactic), aged for 14 months in French oak barrels (one-third new) and racked every four months before being bottled unfiltered and unfined. It displays a very ripe nose with notes of peach and violets, raspberries and morello cherries, with a touch of licorice and iron. The medium-bodied palate is round, the wood is perfectly integrated and the wine ends with precise flavors of violets. This is delicious. 320,000 bottles were produced of this great value wine. Drink 2014-2020."
Allende 2011 is made with the Tempranillo variety. The harvest and selection are made manually. The clusters were destemmed and not squeezed. A pre-fermentation maceration was done at 5ºC, for 6 days. The fermentation was controlled at 28ºC for 10 days in stainless steel tanks, applying three pumping over daily. After the fermentation a second maceration for 16 days is made with the skins. A vertical pressing is carried out before the malolactic fermentation, carried out in stainless steel.
Finally, Allende 2011 ages for 14 months in Bordeaux barrels of French oak. The racking is done every 4 months.
Allende 2011 is ideal to accompany big game hunting, hair hunting, grilled red meats, stews, roasts, cured cheeses and Iberico Bellota ham.
