Meaning “of height” or "of great respect", deAlto hints at the aspirations of the project and of the quality of what is in the bottle.
deAlto craft wines in the best traditions of this classic region but fuse cutting-edge viticultural and winemaking techniques to create a modern interpretation of what they believe to be individual, pure expressions of the Rioja Baja vineyards that they call home.
It is beyond doubt that Rioja is one of the foremost wine regions in the world, but that doesn’t mean there is no potential to be tapped or no new approaches to be explored. The team behind de Alto definitely believe this and have been focusing more and more on what goes on in the vineyard than the bodega. Working with selected vineyards that have been converted and transformed into organic certified oases, the resulting wines are all about the fruit rather than winery and the ageing process. This ‘loco’ approach to the accepted Riojan wisdom has put the winery in stark contrast to the establishment and they seized their chance to create something fun, fresh and lively. Gatito Loco was born.
This blend of 70% Viura and 30% Tempranillo blanco undergoes a cold pressing and pre-maceration for several days before a temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel.
