Artadi Vina El Pisón has an intense, bright cherry red color with purple highlights. Chocolate, cream and toffee dominate the nose, followed by clean fruity aromas of red and black fruits, complemented by hints of spice and minerals. In the mouth lots of ripe fruit, malt and soft tobacco. Complex, fleshy wine with a good balance between the powerful backbone, the soft and sweet tannins, and the ripe, silky fruit notes. A wine of great class with its own personality.
Grapes from the older vines of only one vineyard, El Pisón, are used for this wine. Average age of the vines: 40 years. Solid aging in French oak barriques (renewed every 5 years).
Excellent companion to all kinds of tasty dishes from the Mediterranean kitchen, in particular meat or poultry stews, roasted or grilled lamb, veal or pork, poultry, and aged, hard Spanish cheeses such as idiazábal or roncal.
Vina El Pisón is a delicious Spanish red wine from the Rioja region Spain. This organic wine is made from Tempranillo grapes.
Recommended wine serving temperature between 15°C and 18°C.
Juan Carlos López de Lacalle is considered the best and most outstanding winemaker from Rioja. In Bordeaux, Artadi's famous El Pisón would be classified premier grand cru classé! This single vineyard produces one of the most beautiful red wines in Spain. The other Artadi wines are also excellent, from the elegant Rioja Tempranillo, intense Viñas de Gain to the impressive new crus such as El Carretil, La Poza de Ballesteros and Valdeginés. So this is what is possible in Rioja! However, the wine legislation in Rioja is very outdated.
Artadi's wines produced on terroir with an indication of the exact origin cannot be caught in the hopelessly outdated rules of the Consejo Regulador. This made Juan Carlos decide to leave the DOC and continue his own path.
