- Joseph Puig Rioja Tinto 2011 Product #27596 (In Stock)
An exciting new project from Priorat's Joseph Puig, this line-up of wines made for him by friends from his 40+ years in the business delivers lovely wines at strikingly good prices. His Rioja is 100% Tempranillo, ripened to perfection, and then aged in 400 liter new French oak barrels for just 4 months. The flavors and aromas here are textbook Tempranillo - sappy, savory, meaty and bursting with purple fruit and a hint of lavender. The texture is very pure with snappy acids and fine-grained tannins. Drink it cool as a solo refresher or let it warm up and gain some heft for a wide range of foods. As Joseph told us, this is Rioja tamed by a Catalan!
