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"

Vineyard for 2017 Rioja Tentenublo Wines Los Corrillos Tinto

One of our latest discoveries in the Rioja is a family business called "TENTENUBLO" (this refers to the ringing of the bells used in the villages of La Rioja to repel hail during the growing season). Oliván Roberto has been appointed on behalf of this winery. Although Oliván is relatively young, it already has a very renowned status as a top oenologist. Olivan does not follow the normal structure but makes modern Rioja's and also from vineyards that are unique. All Tentenublo vineyards are high by Rioja standards (at +600 meters) and have a loamy / marl soil. The sticks have to work hard and a lot is left to nature. The yields are extremely low and the wines surprise every Rioja connoisseur. Although this is a young winery, we predict that this house will belong to the absolute Spanish and International top in the coming years.
