Bodega Tentenublo is one of the absolute new style Rioja makers and made two new wines in 2016. The Los Corrillos Blanco and Tinto. The Tinto (red) is a blend of Garnacha, Tempranillo and Graciano; these grapes come from three old, micro-vineyards in the village of Viñaspre. The vineyards are all between 40 and 100 years old and people worked with minimal intervention and tillage. The very small vineyards are located in inhospitable, almost impassable areas and therefore work can only be done manually here. The vineyards have the quality to make a single vineyard wine, but the volumes are too small. As with the white ones, the entire bunches were bruised in a plastic container and the wine aged for six months in French oak barrels. The nose is ripe, with black fruit and there is no oak anywhere; it develops aromas of violets with time in the glass. It clearly improves over time, so decanting in advance can be a good idea. The taste shows a good concentration and sober tannins, with some chalkiness. Only 500 bottles were filled. "Truly handcrafted terroir wines"
