PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEW:
Villota is one of the most exciting new projects that exist today in Rioja. The project is owned, operated, and founded by Carmen Pérez-Garrigues and her father Ricardo Pérez-Villota, the fourth and third generations respectively of the Pérez-Villota family, a line of growers and winemakers that has been rooted in Rioja Alavesa since 1930. While their current bodega was founded in 2013, the Villota-Pérez family is one of the most important in the 20th-century history of Rioja.*

Today's wine is a blend of 84% tempranillo, 11% graciano, and 5% garnacha sourced from the Finca San Rafael Vineyard in the Rioja Alavesa sub-zone. The wine is aged for 18 months in second-pass French oak, followed by two months in concrete tanks.

Rioja Alavesa is situatared north of Rioja's two other sub-zones, Rioja Alta and Rioja Oriental (formerly Baja). While its terroir is very similar to that of Rioja Alta, its higher altitude and closer proximity to the Atlantic have a more cooling effect on the grapes that enable them to achieve moderate acidity levels as well as ripe fruit flavors. Along with the region's soil, which is made up of chalky clay and limestone, these characteristics of terroir bring forth wines that are powerful yet elegant.

93 points, vinous:
"Saturated ruby. Highly perfumed, spice-tinged aromas of cherry, boysenberry, incense, and smoky minerals take on a floral element with air. Concentrated and gently sweet, offering red and dark berry, licorice, chocolate, and violet pastille flavors, along with an energizing touch of cracked pepper. Finishes broad, chewy and long, delivering steadily building tannins and resonating florality." (4/21)
