Artadi is located in the high altitude region of Rioja, Spain. It was founded in 1985 by winemaker Juan Carols Lopez de Lacalle who wanted to produce outstanding Tempranillo from old vines. In its relatively short life the 173-acre Artadi has won rave reviews from such writers as Robert M. Parker Jr. who has called Lacalle Òone of Spain's most creative and brilliant visionaries." Parker added that Lacalle produces Òsome of Spain's (and the world's) greatest wines." The estate produces up to 70,000 bottles a year.
Aromas of spice box, violets, raspberries, blackberries, plums, cherries, and an undeniable minerality are found in this structured, ripe, phenomenally intense red. The finish exceeds one minute.
