Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
I love the 2018 Corriente, the entry-level in Rioja (even if they made me taste it after Las Beatas!). It's from a year with lots of rain (600 liters) that created some fungal challenges and a late harvest that started on the 8th of October and went on until the 1st of November! It was produced with grapes from different altitudes and soils around Lanciego and fermented with indigenous yeasts in concrete vats. It matured in barriques and foudres for close to a year. It has a very expressive nose with great purity and definition, marking the character of what the 2018s from the single vineyards are going to be like. 50,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2020.
