Tinto 2018

Bujanda Tinto is a Rioja Joven, which means "young" and refers to the fact that it sees no oak aging. It is made from 100% Tempranillo from estate vineyards in the Rioja Alta and Alavesa sub-regions.

Wine Production

Fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Fermentation-maceration for 15 days.

Tasting Notes

This wine is ruby red with purple highlights. Fresh and fruity, it is a perfect sipper and refreshing even in warmer weather (try it with a slight chill!). The nose shows red berry, blue fruit, and spice, while the palate is medium bodied with food-friendly acidity.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with jam tapas, sobrasada (chorizo paste), patés and cheese fondue. Works well with white meats and fishes in sauce.
