Red Wine /// Tempranillo // Rioja / Spain
A famous Rioja producer called Artadi actually stopped calling itself Rioja because of its frustration with the stringent laws that prioritise oak ageing above all else. The simple argument against this classification of ageing is that anyone can make a Gran Reserva, you just need to age it, it doesn't mean it will be any good. More and more producers are breaking free and playing by their own rules. Calzadas (walkways) of Aradon captures the excitement of the Rioja terroir with only tasteful use of oak. It was recently highly pointed by James Suckling, the influential American critic. STSWine
