2017 Rioja Tinto "6 Cepas" (Perica, Bodegas)
Bodegas Perica, "6 Cepas" Rioja Tinto, La Rioja, Spain 2016100% Tempranillo BLACK FRUIT & SPICE, SOFT TANNINS, TOUCH OF TOASTY OAK Now in their third generation, Bodegas Perica once again delivers stellar Rioja at an even better value. With the “6 Cepas” series, the García family sought to showcase the ever-malleable Tempranillo grape in a younger and fresher form. Unlike in their single vineyard Olagosa series, this project includes six different plots in Rioja Alta—hence the name 6 Cepas. Signature dark fruit can be found throughout, while the time in new French oak softens the tannins and accentuates the wine’s spicy nature. Distinctly Rioja while being uncommonly crushable. Serving Suggestions: Thinly sliced Serrano ham, a wedge of Manchego, Manzanilla olives, Marcona almonds, & a fresh baguette.
