Iñigo Amézola Rioja Tinto 2017
Iñigo Amézola Tinto is Rioja for the 21st Century. Hailing from a single vineyard called San Quiles, which is considered the estate’s very best, this 100% Tempranillo is only made in the finest vintages. Completely fermented in oak barrels and matured for 8-10 months in a mixture of French and American oak, the result is a deeper, darker, richer and far more modern style of Tempranillo, almost a hybrid between Rioja and Ribera del Duero. In 2017, only 2,800 bottles were produced of this fabulous red and we’re going to be sipping it throughout the winter months with comfort food, roasts and the heating on.
María and Cristina Amézola Downes are two of the youngest bodega owners in Rioja Alta, the western part of Rioja that stretches from Logroño to Haro. They inherited Bodegas Amézola de la Mora when their father Iñigo died in a tragic accident. Although the 60-hectare family estate very much remains a classic Rioja producer, these two siblings are experimenting and putting their stamp on it. With a little help from consultant Georges Pauli, formerly of the ever-popular Château Gruaud Larose in Bordeaux, their wines are some of the most exciting we’ve tasted from Rioja in a long while.
