Hermanos Pecina 2017 Rioja Cosecha Tinto
95% Tempranillo, 3% Garnacha, 2% Graciano | Alc: 13.5% – Earthy and Spicy
Pecina 2017 Rioja Cosecha is bright garnet red, with good depth of color and a clarity which gives it a bright sheen in the glass. Fruity aromas of plums and blackberries and black fruits. Balsamic notes on the palate with good acidity. Fresh and pleasant to drink. Lots of fruity nuances.
“I loved the wild character of the young, unoaked 2017 Señorío de P. Peciña Cosecha, mostly Tempranillo with some 3% Garnacha and 2% Graciano fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts. It had a light maceration and extraction and was kept in tank for two months before bottling. It has a raw and savage nose, mixing raspberry leaf and earthy aromas, full of character with elegant rusticity. It’s juicy and chewy, as pure as it gets. I’d love to see this wine in a couple of years.” 90 Pts – Wine Advocate
