Bodegas Bagordi is located in the town of Andosilla in Rioja Baja-- the area with the most Mediterranean climate in Rioja. It is a 58-hectares estate owned by brothers Luisma and Fernando Carcar--5th generation growers in the region. They were one of the first properties in all of Rioja to be certified organic--not a difficult task for them, since they've been farming true to the land for generations. As all things lead back to the land for the brothers, the name Bagordi is no different. Bagordi is a Basque name from "Bagoa" which means "the beech grove", in reference to the abundance of these majestic trees surrounding the vineyards. The Bagordi Crianza is a blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha. The wine is aged for twelve months in American oak barrels followed by at least one year of bottle age. The wine pours a deep red with violet highlights. On the nose intense aromas of ripe red fruit are mixed with gentle hints of cinnamon, vanilla and coffee. On the palate, the wine displays excellent structure with impeccable balance of fruit and wood flavors, complimented by a subtle anise finish. Enjoy with grilled steak, squash or barbecue chicken.
