Bodegas Martinez Corta "Cepas Antiguas, Selección Privada" Rioja '17

In Rioja Alta, the Martínez-Corta family have been cultivating vines for several generations.  The Rioja Alta region is on the western edge, where there are some of the highest elevation points of entire appellation, with great calcareous clay soils.  The area, due to its higher elevation, brings about fresh, fruit-driven wines, in part to its shorter growing season in an area that is very hot and dry.

In a region known for expensive wines, you can still find highly approachable selections that can be value driven, and something to enjoy sooner rather than later.  Martínez-Corta makes great juicy, fruit-driven wines.  This is a fresh bottling of Tempranillo, showcasing ripe plums, red fruit, as well as vanilla and toasted notes due to its aging in French oak barrels.  Lots of great layers for its value and freshness!
