Gatito Loco Tempranillo 2019
- Medium bodied
- Rioja DOC
Yes! The cat is back!
It’s the return of a new vintage of Rioja’s new wave tempranillo that’s named after a crazy cat! Far from the dusty leather armchair wines most associated with the region, this is young, racy and much more fun. It’s for a young-at-heart crowd, bright, juicy and exuberant. Though, for all its fun, it tastes like a wine well above the price bracket. Raucously red fruited, with 10% American oak to give it some spice, it is compact and punchy in form. Great value for all of the spice, plums and tannins in this delicious wine.

From the producer
Intense cherry red colour, ripe black and red fruits, spices, liquorice and chocolate aroma. Round and well-balanced with fruit notes.
The vines in La Muga and Los Poyatos vineyards are mostly very old vines of Tempranillo.
Really healthy grapes were harvested and after slow fermentation in tank at controlled temperatures the wine was transferred to barrel. A mixture of a few new American oak barrels (10%), just to give the spice and toast aromas but mostly 2nd and 3rd year barrels of predominantly French oak were used to promote the evolution of the wine from a bright fruit bomb to something more mellow with a roundness and the unmistakeable stamp of something good. 6 Months in oak.
