World-class Riojas – Artuke, La Condenada Genérico 2017

Artuke, La Condenada Genérico 2017

RRP £65

The sandy soils don’t look particularly promising, but this 0.75ha parcel in Baños de Ebro, rescued from neglect in 2012 by Arturo and Kike de Miguel, produces world-class wines from a blend of Tempranillo and 20% Graciano, Garnacha and white grapes. Fine, focused and beautifully balanced.
