La Maldita Garnacha 2015
Though Garnacha grapes are the second most planted varietal throughout Rioja, they have earned the nickname La Maldita or “little cursed one” due to low yields and low profitability. This wine aims to celebrate the heritage of Garnacha in the region.
Incredibly fresh and fruit-forward with notes of strawberries, tart cherries, spring flowers, and loamy soil undertones in a medium-bodied, pure format. Vibrant acidity and silky tannins allow this easy-drinking red to go down smoothly. Aged predominantly in stainless steel on the lees for 3-4 months, with a percentage resting in French and American barrels. Enjoy with everyday favorites such as pizza, pastas, burgers, and grilled vegetables. Drink young.
