The Story

Bodegas Amezola de la Mora


Bodegas Amezola de la Mora

Bodegas Amezola de la Mora was established in the mid-19th Century and is one of Rioja's oldest and finest wine estates. Restored in the early 1980s by the flamboyant Iñigo Amezola de la Mora, this estate is extremely unusual (for Rioja) in that it owns all of its vines.

The 65 hecatres of vineyards, planted with Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Graciano, benefit from a high altitude and cooler climate, and yield elegant, classic wines packed full of harmonious red berry and vanilla flavours.

Tragically, Iñigo was killed in 1999 in a car crash, but his wife Kitty and bodega manager Julio Galarreta have continued making outstanding wines, supported by renowned Bordeaux winemaker, Georges Pauli.


Tempranillo/Tinto Fino

Tempranillo/Tinto Fino

A high quality red wine grape that is grown all over Spain except in the hot South - it is known as Tinto Fino in Ribera del Duero, Cencibel in La Mancha and Valdepenas and Ull de Llebre in Catalonia. Its spiritual home is in Rioja and Navarra where it constitutes around 70% of most red blends.

Tempranillo-based wines tend to have a spicy, herbal, tobacco-like character accompanied by ripe strawberry and red cherry fruits. It produces fresh, vibrantly fruit driven "jovenes" meant for drinking young. However Tempranillo really comes into its own when oak aged, as with the top Riojas  where its flavours seem to harmonise perfectly with both French and American oak, producing rich, powerful and concentrated wines which can be extraordinarily long-lived.

In Ribera del Duero it generally sees less oak - the exception being Vega Sicilia where it is blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and then aged for an astonishing 7 years in oak and is unquestionably one of the world`s greatest wines.
