A feature that distinguishes Tentenublo is the special situation of the 7 hectares of vineyards, spread over 19 plots located between Viñaspre and Lanciego, one of the lesser known areas of the Rioja region. The incredible diversity of these plots leads to the various wines that Tenteublo produces, all of which are very small unique plots, so the final production is only a handful of very unique great Rioja wines. Bodega Tentenublo belongs to the absolute new style Rioja makers. Made from a blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha supplemented with a very small amount of malveisia and viura. The vineyards are all between 40 and 100 years old and they worked with minimal intervention and tillage. For example, the Tentenublo Tinto is a sensation of fresh fruit. The wine was aged for 10 months in French oak. In the nose we smell ripe black fruit with balsamic shades. It is a lively wine, uninhibited and informal and pure quality. Parker writes in his review (93/100): " This has personality and is very attractive "

FACT: In some cases, the wines get a kind of WAX closure instead of a regular capsule. This has no further purpose and has the disadvantage that it hardens quite quickly and pieces can then simply crumble (spontaneously, during transport, etc.). This has no influence on the quality of the wine. We cannot give any further guarantee for this.
