Vinos Sin Ley Graciano Rioja DOCa "Gra2" 2011
Country: SPAIN / Region: RIOJA / Appellation: RIOJA DOCA / Varietal(s): GRACIANO --- Native to Spain, the graciano grape is currently in danger of extinction, as it is difficult to grow, low yielding, and less popular than better-known tempranillo and garnacha. With its deep pigmentation, firm tannin, good acidity, and intense aromatics, it is often used as a blending grape, but here gets to shine all by itself. Made by a cooperative of young, innovative winemakers whose motto is “create new wines based on a faithful expression of grapes and terroir”, this is a delicious and rare find: single varietal graciano. Fermented entirely in stainless steel, the seductive nose of blueberry, sweet cherry, earth, rose petal, clove, and minerals shines through without any woody, spicy oak in the way. Slightly lighter on the palate than its inky color would suggest, the balance of acidity and tannin add lovely structure, finished off with tinges of red fruit, tobacco, and slight bitterness. Throw some chorizo on the grill and celebrate the renaissance of this tasty grape - our new Daily Deal!
