Telmo Rodriguez - Bodega Lanzaga
Tempranillo, Graciano & Garnacha
“Rioja Corriente” is an expression from the turn of the century, referring to a pure, unclassified wine meant for everyday drinking. Bush vines in the cool Lanciego zone within Rioja Alavesa on flat shallow soils that are stony, calcareous, and low in nutrients.
Hand picked with wild yeast primary fermentation and malolactic in concrete tank and stainless steel followed by 12 months aging in a mixed regime of barrel and foudre.
TASTING NOTES |
“The entry-level red from Rioja 2016 Corriente is always a sure value, but the 2016 is truly exceptional, possibly the finest vintage they have bottled to date. It’s floral and aromatic, very elegant and balanced. There are fine tannins, a chalky minerality and a supple finish. This is a great Rioja with freshness and typicity.” - Luis Gutierrez
