Winemaking Process

The vines are located on the higher lands of the river Ebro, at an altitude of 550 meters. The soil is sandy gravel and a chalky undersoil. The land would seem impossible to work for producing wine, but that is exactly what happened, and the name on the wine “Locos” or “crazy” only demonstrating the work that has gone in to create this wine. The wine is produced using traditional methods and aged for 16 months in French oak barrels. Artuke Finca Los Locos is a wine from a one plot of land, with which indentifies and also separates them from other wines.


Tasting Note

Dark garnet red colour with purple tones. In the nose, it is elegant and structured, ripe red fruit aromas combined with roasted and herbal notes. Light mineral base. In the mouth it is wide and unctuous. Passing is creamy, with body, presence of black fruit with well-integrated roasted undertones. Tannins are round, good acidity. Persistent finish.


Pairing

Small game, beef goulash, stews, aged cheeses.
