Rioja (Lantziego)

'El Velado' Single Vineyard 2019


Leather and soft chocolate lead with cedar, white pepper and red currant, it's not garnacha-ey as such, nor warm in any way, but you can feel the quiet insistent tug of the Mediterranean, and the wine has a brilliance and energy that is pure cold-soil Rioja. It's Rioja, son, but not as we know it!
