Tasting Note

Produced from top quality organic fruit - rich, ripe plum and cherry characters combine with spice and gentle tannins. This is a classic Rioja, full-flavoured with dark fruit and spiced mulberry characters.

Producer Details

This large, family-owned estate draws from 800 hectares of elevated hillside vineyards in some of the best zones of Rioja Baja. Thanks to a combination of the high quality of the grapes from these vineyards and modern vinification cellars, the young, unoaked wines are fresh and vibrant with good richness of fruit for wines at this level. A new barrel ageing cellar was completed in 2006 as production of the ripe and supple Crianza increases.

In The Vineyard

200 hectares of estate vineyards near Alfaro provide the basis of the Artesa range and the best of these, at high altitude (500 to 600 metre), with mature vines and poor, stony soils, are being converted to organic production.

In The Winery

Fermented in stainless steel. Matured 6 months in American oak barrels.

Food Recommendations

Drink with casseroles, red meat or Manchego cheese.
