Rioja

Rioja is the first Denominaciòn de Origen Calificada in Spain, with a thousand-year history behind it. Located north of the Iberian Peninsula, in an area highly suited for viticulture, which benefits from the confluence of the Atlantic and Mediterranean climates.
Like Bordeaux, whose wines have exerted a strong influence on the red style of this region, Rioja is among the most prestigious areas in the world for the production of long-aging wines.

The most widespread variety in the area is Tempranillo , however most of the wines of this denomination derive from a blend of different varieties : Garnacha which adds body and robustness in the most difficult vintages, Graciano which brings aromas and structure.

Red wines are classified into four categories:

  • Rioja , the youngest, which enhances the fresh and fruity aromas of Tempranillo;
  • Rioja Crianza , aged at least three years, of which six months in cask;
  • Rioja Reserva , aged at least three years, one of which in cask;
  • Rioja Gran Reserva , aged at least five years, two of which in cask and three in bottle.

Next to the traditional reds, aged in French style in oak barriques, we find innovative whites obtained entirely from the Viura variety or from the more recent Tempranillo Blanco , which enriches the wines with floral scents, tropical and citrine notes.
