Outer quote mark Very pretty and aromatic with plum and orange peel with floral undertones. Medium to full body, with very fine tannins and a beautiful, fine-grained finish. Drinkable now, but a year or two will real show it off. From organically grown grapes. Inner quote mark (9/2020)
It was not an easy vintage in Rioja, where they saw drought, bad fruit setting and minor damage from frost and hail, all of which caused a reduction in yields. But the end of the season was dry, the grapes were healthy, and based on what I could see in this young red, the wines are moderately ripe and quite good. This comes from their own organically grown and head-pruned vineyards at 500 to 700 meters in altitude on limestone-rich slopes. It fermented in concrete tanks with indigenous yeasts and was kept in concrete for six to seven months. It's pure fruit, like biting into a bunch of ripe grapes, juicy and refreshing. (LG - 10/2020)
A juicy, young Rioja with bright fruit aromas and a touch of spice. Fresh on the palate, with ripe cherry and cranberry notes with a well-balanced acidity, light tannins and mineral notes. No oak.
