Finca de los Locos Rioja, Artuke
Type: Red Wine
Grape(s): Tempranillo (80%), Graciano (20%)
Wine Region: Rioja, Spain
Tasting Notes: Finca de los Locos is elegant and structured, ripe red fruit aromas combined with roasted and herbal notes. Light mineral base. Artuke Finca Los Locos is a powerful, balanced and amiable wine. On the nose, it clearly reflects the ripe red fruit on a shy toasted background of its ageing.
The Vineyard: Finca los Locos is one of Bodegas Artuke's famous single-vineyard wines. Not a traditional style of Rioja but certainly one of the finest wines from Spain's most famous wine region. Finca los Locos is so called as Artuke were told that they would be crazy to try to try to produce a wine from this vineyard site. Not only did Artuke prove everyone wrong but it is a stellar wine.
Suggested food and wine pairing: The wines of Rioja traditionally pair well with lamb and Artuke's Finca los Locos is a great example of this majestic partnership but it would work equally well with all red meats.
