Characteristics of Artuke Finca de los Locos

Artuke Finca Los Locos is a red wine made by Bodegas y Viñedos Artuke in the D.O.Ca. Rioja.
This winery is located in the municipality of Baños de Ebro (Álava), in the area of the D.O. known as La Rioja Alavesa.

Artuke Finca Los Locos
is a blend of Tempranillo (80%) and Graciano (20%).

The vines are located on the higher lands of the river Ebro, at an altitude of 550 meters. The soil is sandy gravel and a chalky undersoil.

The land would seem impossible to work for producing wine, but that is exactly what happened, and the name on the wine "Locos" or "crazy" only demonstrating the work that has gone in to create this wine.

The wine is produced using traditional methods and aged for 16 months in French oak barrels.

Artuke Finca Los Locos is a wine from a one plot of land, with which indentifies and also separates them from other wines.

Tasting notes Artuke Finca de los Locos

This vintage, rated as "Very Good", was characterized by the hard frost that occurred when the vegetative cycle was beginning in mid-April, and by the subsequent drought. Except for these two weather events, the year passed normally, with the vintage displaying a perfect health status in the last phase of the cycle. The wines of this vintage are characterized by having a somewhat higher average graduation than 2016, with a very good aging capacity and a high percentage of fine and very identifiable wines.
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. In the mouth, it is vigorous, with intensity and an acidity that is well integrated and that gives it freshness and liveliness.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
Sight Dark garnet red with purple tones. Nose Elegant and structured, ripe red fruit aromas combined with roasted and herbal notes. Light mineral base. Taste Wide and unctuous. Passing is creamy, with body, presence of black fruit with well-integrated roasted undertones. Tannins are round, good acidity. Persistent finish.
Sight High layer, dark cherry with purple hues. Nose Medium to high intensity with aromas of ripe black fruit (blackberries, plums), toast and spicy notes on a balsamic background. Taste Pleasant, silky and wide entrance. Tasty with presence of black fruit and spicy notes. Well balanced acidity and round tannins. Structured, long finish.
