The wine is rich in clear aromas of ripe raspberries and strawberries combined with notes of coffee, forest litter and violets. In the mouth, the soft tannins harmoniously combine with a pleasant fruitiness and delicate acidity. It goes perfectly with roasted chicken, grilled salmon and pork tenderloin. Ontanón Ecológico is made from 100% Tempranillo, grapes that are extremely important to the heritage of the family and the region. Ecológico spends five months in a barrel.
Bodegas Ontañón is a multi-generation family winery located in Rioja Baja. Our 250 hectares (approximately 620 acres) of vineyards are located high in the Sierra Yerga mountains outside the town of Quel, which has been one of Rioja's most distinguished wine centers for three centuries. "Passion for the vine, passion for wine and passion for the arts" is the winery's motto, they believe that each of these elements contributes to the human experience and illustrates the essential connection of earth, people and culture.
The Rioja's soils make it ideal for growing top-quality varieties that are balanced in structure, have high acidity and only need a moderate amount of water during the summer months. Rioja consists of several microclimates with extremely diverse soils, which is reflected in the unique characteristics of its wines. This, combined with the many different winemaking practices and grape varieties, enables winemakers to produce wines with very different personalities but which remain true to the region's history and characteristics.
