Why this wine made the cut…
Old school Rioja that never disappoints.
Rioja, Spain
GRAPE VARIETAL(S)
Tempranillo
Tem-pra-NEE-yo
Tempranillo is the most planted red grape variety in Spain and is also responsible for some of its best wines. The grape yields medium to full-bodied, mostly Tone & Backbone red wines of moderate to high levels of tannins and acidity. Flavor wise, it shows a mix of red and dark fruits, including cherry and plum, as well as leather, tobacco, with herbal and spice notes.
Garnacha
Gar-NATCH-a
Grenache is widely planted throughout the world but some of the best expressions come from the southern Rhone, and in Spain’s Priorat. Grenache has small berries with thick grape skins resulting in dark, tannic wine in its youth combined with an almost ripe sweetness and elevated alcohol. Often part of a blend, Grenache offers a lot of fruit, spice, with floral and herbal notes.

Bodegas Hermanos Peciña

Rioja

Bodegas Hermanos Peciña produces classic Rioja, which might sound like an odd statement for a winery that was only just founded in 1992. That’s until you understand its founder, Pedro Peciña. After 18 years as vineyard manager at the famed classic producer Rioja Alta, Pedro left to focus his skills on his own 20-hectare estate.

Peciña’s vineyards are some of Rioja’s finest, located at high altitude with rich chalky soils. Farming includes no use of pesticides with all harvesting done by hand. Peciña’s winemaking includes hand-racking—moving the wine from one barrel to another to let the wine breathe—and extended aging in neutral American-oak barrels, making these wines very complex and nuanced upon release. 

Bodegas Hermanos Peciña’s Crianza is aged two years in barrel and 18 months in bottle. It is a blend of primarily tempranillo with a small amount of garnacha. It is a graceful and accessible example of Peciña’s pedigree.
