Artadi, Vinas de Gain Tinto, Alava, Spain, 2019  

Grape: 100% Tempranillo from 20-30 year old vineyards around Laguardia, certified organic, hand picked, vinified in open-top steel vats, 12 months' ageing in French oak barrels.

The style of this wine is characterised by aromas and flavours of fresh and delicate red fruits. Their sweet and subtle tannins generate velvety textures in the mouth.

This wine can be enjoyed at a young age expressing the youthfulness of each vintage, or it can be rediscovered after having spent many years in the bottle. 

"The young red 2019 Viñas de Gaín was produced with Tempranillo grapes from different vineyards in Laguardia and Elvillar at 450 to 700 meters in altitude that fermented in oak and stainless steel vats followed by malolactic in barrel and an élevage in barrel of nine months. They aimed for a fresh and fruit-driven, juicy red that comes from a low-yielding year, so the wine is concentrated but keeps the approachable style. It has nice balance. In warmer and riper years, they do shorter macerations at lower temperature and a short élevage to keep the aromatic and fruit-driven character, avoiding heavy wines. This is always a very good value within the Artadi range. 90,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2020."

92/100 points, Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate, December 2021

Bodegas Artadi wines used to be sold as "Rioja", but have now decided not to be associated with the name and produce their wines exactly how they see fit for the best quality. "Vinas de Gain" is now labelled as a "village" wine.

Artadi dates back to 1981 when its current owner, Juan Carlos López de Lacalle, together with his family and thirteen local growers founded Artadi in the heart of Alava. 

Today, Artadi own 65 hectares of vineyard in their original site of Álava, in Laguardia, planted in soils with wide geological diversity. These distinctive vineyard sites give singularity to their wines, allowing the character of the fruit and the finesse of the tannins to shine.
