Winemaking Notes: Grapes are harvested and sorted by hand. The wine is fermented in stainless steel upright tanks with indigenous yeasts. It is racked four times over the two-year period it is aged in used American oak barrels. It's then aged another 18 months in bottle before being put on the market. Its round mouthfeel makes it the perfect product to drink now, although it will keep for up to ten years, with marked improvement.

About Hermanos Pecina: The former vineyard manager for La Rioja Alta, Pedro Peciña started this estate in 1992, and started producing aged wines with the 1996 vintage. From the start, the estate has worked their vineyards as naturally as possible, and has championed traditional winemaking with extended aging in used American oak barrels and regular rackings every 6 months. Pedro is preserving the diversity of the old vineyards, keeping varieties that others are ripping out.

    “I love the classical nose of spice, berries and herbs of the 2016 Señorío de P. Peciña Crianza, a textbook ultra-classical Rioja that matured in used American oak barrels for 24 months, during which time it was racked by gravity every six months. These wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts and a soft vinification without much extraction of long macerations. It's expressive, polished and very pleasant, really what I expect in this style, with some developed notes and a gentle mouthfeel. 100,000 bottles produced. Very good introduction to a classical Crianza at a very attractive price. It was bottled in April 2021. Drink 2022-2028.” - Luis Gutiérrez
