    Hermanos Peciña Rioja Tinto "Cosecha" '19

    The Rioja region is one of Spain’s greatest agricultural treasures.

    Bodegas Hermanos Peciña, now almost thirty years in existence, is a relative new kid on the block when compared to the well-established bodegas that have been producing for well-over 100 years.

    The winery was founded by Pedro Peciña Crespo and his children in 1992. Located in San Vincente de la Sonsierra, in the heart of the Rioja Alta sub-zone. In total the family owns around 50 hectares of vineyards, planted on the northeast side of the Ebro river, close the Basque Alavesa zone.

    Peciña began their journey at a time when shorter aging and the usage of French oak was starting to become THE fashion in Rioja. That was not the direction that the family wanted to go in. Their inspiration was the classic, traditional estates that matured their wine for long periods of time in American oak barrels. Peciña became another welcome addition to the top bodegas of staunch traditionalists.

    The wine I chose to feature today is not that classic traditional style, but rather a beautiful unoaked Rioja Tinto, that shows off the immense quality of their fruit. A blend off 95% Tempranillo, 3% Graciano, and 2% Garnacha the fruit comes from two estate vineyards, “La Veguilla” and “Valesca.” The average age of the vines are around 25 years-old. The production is straight forward, with the grapes being destemmed and crushed, followed by 3 to 4 days of maceration, before fermentation in tank with natural yeasts. The wine is aged in tank for a short period before being bottled.

    The 2019 has a beautiful nose, that highlights darker fruit, including plums and spiced blackberries. The palate is medium-bodied, with a mixture of dark and red fruit, balsamic notes and a long and bright finish. This will be a big hit at your labor day BBQ.
