Seniorio de Pecina Rioja Crianza

aboutImg

Considered Spain’s most famous and important wine for the past 130 years, Rioja has evolved in the past 20 years to include a more modern style of winemaking that produces fruitier, more youthful wines. The old school method is to age the wine in old, neutral American oak barrels for long periods to create silky, complex wines that can be enjoyed immediately or can age gracefully for many years. One of the only new wineries to champion this traditional-style is Señorío de P. Peciña. Winemaker and owner Pedro Peciña hails from a long list of grape growers, and was the vineyard manager for La Rioja Alta, arguably one of Rioja’s most famous wineries. He started the winery in 1992 using sustainable farming and minimalist winemaking techniques(before “natural” wine was a thing!). He uses American oak barrels of 5-6 years old to impart subtle flavors. His vineyards are located in Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa, where the most famous wineries are located. His 2014 Crianza is a beautiful wine that showcases the complexity of this old-world style. It displays red and black fruits up front, giving way to spice, licorice and clove notes. Extremely well balanced, it shows an inviting warmth and sustained finish, yet never overpowers. This is a wonderful example of someone following their passions and producing wines of subtle power and elegance. I am sure that you will enjoy this wine, especially as hem akes his wines available at such an incredibly affordable price relative to his peers! Enjoy! – Drew Fuller
