Is this the best bargain in the shop right now? Could be. Insane amounts of black fruits, chocolate, and heft. It's got a bit of that Southern Rhone smokiness too and would just rock socks with any kind of BBQ smothered in sauce. This hails from Spain in a region just south east of Rioja (Calatayud), where the weather is a bit warmer, something this wine shows with pride. Anyone who likes full-bodied, juicy wines and also likes spending less than ten bucks to get it, are going to be ecstatic
|The winery is located in Villarroya de la Sierra, one of the highest areas of the DO made of Paleolithic materials, mainly quartzite and slate. In addition the soils have the right organic content, which provide sufficient nutrients to the plant with proper aeration. The climate offers little rain and large temperature fluctuations between day and night.
