Review

The Bodegas Exopto winery has used the classic Rioja blend of Grenache, Tempranillo and a little Graciano to produce this gem of a wine. Extremely fruity and expressive, it is a well-balanced wine which is easy to drink. Thanks to the experience and wisdom of our winemaking ancestors who developed this combination of grapes, we can enjoy fresh and juicy wines like the Bozeto de Exopto.

It has a dark and intense Picota cherry colour in the glass, though not too opaque. An excellent concentration of fruit is noticeable from the first glance, and the legs seen when swirling the wine in the glass show it will have a glyceric and dense feel. Wild and spicy aromas stand out in the nose, especially notes of black pepper, eucalyptus and cranberries. It maintains its freshness in the mouth while offering a somewhat more mature feeling, with hints of plums and cherries in liqueur. Cocoa, good tannins, and earthy sensations of dry aromatic herbs such as bay leaves accompany well-integrated aromas of ageing reminiscent of cedar. Added to this, an elegant hint of orange peel gives fragrance to the flavoursome, appetizing and warm feeling enjoyed on drinking. Bozeto de Exopto has the easily recognizable features of a Rioja wine, yet is still a personal wine with its own unique attractiveness.

Fermented in concrete tanks and then aged in concrete and wood for six months while respecting the fruit, Bozeto is a small yet great wine, rounded and complete, brimming with fruit. It expresses its terroir wonderfully with the landscape present in every sip through hints of iron and graphite. A wine which tastes and smells of earth and fruit; an honest, expressive, juicy and friendly wine, with structure and body — all in all, a very complete wine.

Bozeto de Exopto 2019

I keep writing about various wines and it does keep me on my toes. This wine in a nut shell tell me all a good wine should be.

Lighter Rioja

Lighter, fresher Rioja, very easy to drink. I suppose Garnacha does the job. Somehow reminds me La Montesa. Good value.

A full bodied fruity wine

I was really looking forwards to tasting this wine and it lived up to expectations. It was very full bodied and good value for the price. For my personal taste it was a bit on the "heavy" side, I think if it had slightly less alcohol content it would have been a bit lighter and much more in line with my pallet. However I would buy it again.

Un vino para todo

Es un vino joven fresco que vale para todo tipo de comidas o tapas. Es el vino más bajo de la bodega. Pero es un rioja agradable que invita a beber

smashing wine

Great wine at this price point - I guaranteed you'll not be disappointed in this, for me it's a good every day bottle. Cherry red wine with purple rim. Nose with cherry, spices, cedar wood, soft tannins. A simple, balanced Rioja.
