Sonsierra Rioja Reserva
By Pete's Provisions
WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
An attractive maroon colour with a ruby edge. The bouquet offers elegant balsamic notes with a highly complex spiciness, in addition to hints of ripe dark fruit and a slight aroma of toast. In the mouth it is well-rounded and velvety, with a hint of toast at the end that provides a pleasant finish.
ABOUT THE WINERY
They call us “macanes”, that’s how we are known in the surrounding towns of San Vicente de la Sonsierra. They also call us “renegades” because we renounce the Kingdom of Castilla in favor of the Kingdom of Navarra. The fact is that the history of our town has marked our character and that’s how we are: fighters, nonconformists, avant-garde, different, unique…
Our parents and grandparents knew that alone they could not do great things but together they could. So one fine day back in 19XX they came up with the brilliant idea of pooling their vineyards and making a dream come true: to create a cooperative in order to produce their own wines.
And so our story began. After several generations cultivating our own vineyards with practices perfected over time, we have managed to make authentic wines with their own identity, a true reflection of the landscape and the centuries-old winemaking tradition of our territory.”
