Artuke Maceracion Carbonica Rioja

Artuke Maceracion Carbonica Rioja

€17.95
 

95% Tempranillo / 5% Viura. Made in a Beaujolais style, with the carbonic maceration method.  This juicy ”Joven” fresh fruited style of Rioja has zero oak influence as it ages in concrete tanks for 6 months. Farmed without any synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Cherry colour with purple trim. Bright and clean in the middle. Fresh and aromatic, presents lactic notes on miral brackground. On the palate is tasty and cool. It has good acidity and ripe tannins. Aromatic memories and mineral notes. This mouth-watering red wine takes a relatively deep chill which makes it a versatile pairing with all types of food: tuna, pretty much anything made with zucchini, fried chicken, gooey cheese sandwiches, pizza, etc…

Description

Arturo Blanco was once asked what the philosophy at Bodegas Artuke was and he simply replied ‘we are farmers’. The approach here is 100% focused on interpreting the family’s 32 plots which are split between the villages of Baños de Ebro and Ábalos in Rioja Alavesa. Biodynamic techniques are employed in the vineyards and Arturo and Kike are also busy recovering old, ignored plots of ancient vines. Vinification is aimed at expressing the characteristics of the vineyard and quality of fruit above all else. The restrained use of oak and inclination towards different types/sizes of barrel, plus an unwillingness to adhere to the subscribed regimes for classification means that Artuke are precluded from using Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva designations on their wines.
