93The Wine Advocate

This is sharp, mineral and saline, bone dry and clean, precise, from a slightly warmer year than 2015 in the zone. It's slightly different, quite pure, with some nutty undertones, with a slightly rounder palate and quite long. The most striking feature of this is its salinity in the finish.



Artadi is located in the high altitude region of Rioja, Spain. It was founded in 1985 by winemaker Juan Carols Lopez de Lacalle who wanted to produce outstanding Tempranillo from old vines. In its relatively short life the 173-acre Artadi has won rave reviews from such writers as Robert M. Parker Jr. who has called Lacalle “one of Spain’s most creative and brilliant visionaries.” Parker added that Lacalle produces “some of Spain’s (and the world’s) greatest wines.” The estate produces up to 70,000 bottles a year.
