Suañé Tinto Reserva is a Rioja red wine from the Alonso & Pedrajo winery, characterised by the personality and originality of its wines. The term Suañé comes from the phonetic transformation of the French word "soigne" which means refined, delicate, careful, cared for... The vineyards come from two different smallholdings in Villalba de Rioja (Finca la Cala) and Haro at 550 and 615 metres above sea level respectively.
It has a garnet red colour of good intensity, dense and deep. On the nose, it is shy at first. It has notes of black fruit, plum stone and fig bread combined with subtle wood and hints of liquorice.
On the palate it has a fresh entry and good texture. The aftertaste is long and intense, reproducing the sensations perceived on the nose. The tannin is fine, silky and well integrated.
The serving temperature is 16 degrees. The winery recommends opening it 30 minutes before drinking.

Vineyard and elaboration
Bunches are selected on the table, destemmed and placed in concrete vats without crushing them and without corrections. Alcoholic fermentation takes place without pumping over, with only 2 or 3 light stirrings. Once fermentation is complete, skins are gently pressed in a vertical press. Malolactic fermentation takes place in 228-litre oak barrels, stirring the lees until transfering.
The Alonso & Pedrajo winery was born from a close and long friendship between two families who encouraged each other to start together the dream of making their own wine.
Theory was put into practice in 2011. They chose the land and, in October 2013, they started the first harvests.
They have not yet travelled very far, but it has been a very intense journey. They are characterised by respecting and minimal intervening cultivation and winemaking techniques, which allows them to make wines that seek to surprise with their character and originality, but without forgetting the origin of their grapes, the most western Rioja in the foothills of the Obarenes Mountains, in Villalba de Rioja.
