Tasting Notes

The 2009 El Puntido carries the name of the vineyard in Laguardia (Alava) from which the Tempranillo grapes are sourced , 25 hectares at 600 meters altitude with borderline climate for Tempranillo and a very high content of chalk, which makes for very fresh wines. The grapes ferment with their own yeast in stainless steel, and malolactic fermentation is carried out in French oak barrels where the wine then ages for 18 months. The 2009 feels young and a little backward with riper fruit that gives a strong sensation of freshness. The palate shows abundant tannins balanced by very good acidity with that fresh sensation found in the nose and a mineral, almost salty finish. An Atlantic Rioja from a Mediterranean vintage. 48,000 bottles produced. Drink 2014-2023.
