The secret of good Rioja-style potatoes lies in the use of authentic Riojan chorizo and dried choricero peppers; as well as the freshest potatoes possible, which must be “chascadas” (or “cracked”), never cut with a knife, but kind of ripped away in chunks so they release their starch which makes a thick, succulent sauce.
In the 1800s, French oak barrels began to be used in La Rioja. In addition to adding character to the wines, they increased the wine’s longevity.
Unlike other areas in the world, Rioja adopted the model of selling its wines “ready to drink.” The wines are initially kept in the bottle, so, it is normal to find that the vintages for sale are several years old.
Our Crianza wines are a traditional type of wine, where red wines reach the market after the third year. They mature in the cellars for a minimum of two years, the first twelve months must be spent in oak barrels and the rest in bottle. It is one of the categories that offers the most wine styles.
