Señorío de P.Peciña Tinto Crianza 2013

Varietals: 95%  Tempranillo, 3% Graciano, 2% Garnacha

Alcohol:  13.0%

Soil type:  Argilo-calcareous

Maturation:  Matured for 24 months in seasoned American oak before bottling unfiltered

The Crianza stands out for its pleasant fruit, combined with light oxidation from the time it spent in barrel. The wine is a field blend of 95% Tempranillo, 3% Graciano and 2% Garnacha, where the average age of the vines is 25 years. Grapes are hand-harvested, and the vineyards are farmed in a sustainable fashion, without the use of any systemic fungicides, herbacides or pesticides. It is aged for 24 months in American oak casks, during which time the wine is racked every six months by means of the traditional “barrel to barrel” method. It is then bottled unfiltered and allowed to age for at least 18 months before release. This wine could now classify as a Reserva because of the further ageing in bottle, but the winery chose instead to classify it as a Crianza. 

Tasting note:

The colour is cherry-red, with a slightly orange rim. On the nose, there are intense aromas of ripe fruit, with hints of vanilla and toasted wood, with cherry jam in the background. On the palate, the wine has luscious sweet red fruit flavours, tobacco and spice, with fine grained tannins and a long, silky finish. This is ready to drink.

Review:

“Hermanos Peciña’s traditional reds provide some of the best value drinking in Rioja. Aged in old barrels, this blend of Tempranillo with a little Garnacha and Graciano is beautifully pitched, floral aromas, balsamic red fruit sweetness and more grip than you think. 2018-25.” - 93 points, Tim Atkin, MW, February 2018
