Viñas de Gain (Red) 2019, Artadi, Rioja
The style of this wine is characterised by aromas and flavours of fresh and delicate red fruits. Their sweet and subtle tannins generate velvety textures in the mouth.
Bodegas Artadi wines used to be sold as “Rioja”, but have now decided not to be associated with the name and produce their wines exactly how they see fit for the best quality. “Vinas de Gain” is now labelled as a “village” wine.
Artadi dates back to 1981 when its current owner, Juan Carlos López de Lacalle, together with his family and thirteen local growers founded Artadi in the heart of Alava.
Today, Artadi own 65 hectares of vineyard in their original site of Álava, in Laguardia, planted in soils with wide geological diversity. These distinctive vineyard sites give singularity to their wines, allowing the character of the fruit and the finesse of the tannins to shine.
Tempranillo from 20-30 year old vineyards around Laguardia, certified organic, hand picked, vinified in open-top steel vats, 12 months’ ageing in French oak barrels.
