Winemaking Notes: The Tinto Cosecha is made from Hermanos Pecina's youngest vines, La Veguilla and Valseca vineyards, which average 27 years in age. The grapes are destemmed, crushed, and macerated for three to four days before fermentation begins naturally with the wild yeast on the skins. Fermentation then continues for 10-12 days more. The wine is aged in stainless steel with racking to another tank every three months. No oak aging. The wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes: Balsamic notes, good acidity, fresh and pleasant to drink. Lots of fruity nuances.

"This is an entry-level bottle from one of my favorite Rioja producers. It’s made from the estate’s youngest vines, which are still around 25 years old, and unlike more ambitious Riojas, it is not aged in oak, which leaves it fresh, fruity and immediately accessible. It’s a balanced, refreshing expression of tempranillo from a good Rioja terroir."
