Alberto Orte Sierra de la Demanda Rioja 'Anibal' 2015


A Verve Wine Exclusive! Alberto Orte is from a winemaking family, born in Madrid with a lifelong interest in the wines and resources of his home country. Alberto's been called a "farmer, producer, and historian all in one" because of his dedication to the revival of nearly extinct local varieties. Alberto has identified 200+ old clones and 22 forgotten varieties, and that's in only in Jerez!

Sierra de la Demanda includes grapes from some of highest elevation vineyards in Rioja.  A stunning red wine to pair with rich seafood such as salmon as well as roasted game, poultry, or hearty stews.
