Bodegas Hermanos Peciña is a winery founded in 1992 by Pedro Peciña, the former agronomist for La Rioja Alta.
The family organically farms 50 hectares of vineyards in Rioja Alta, tending care to their 40-60 year old vines growing at 500 metres at the foothills of the Sierra Cantabria Mountains. After hand harvesting and native fermentation, the single parcels are aged in older American oak barrels before resting for an extended period in the bottle prior to release. The winery is one of the only bodegas still utilizing the labour-intensive traditional trasiego system in the winery. Every six months the wine is manually racked using only gravity and decanting from barrel to barrel without agitation or pumping, thus very slowing separating the clear wine from the lees, and keeping the wine’s full character intact. These are thoughtful and current wines made with ample respect to Rioja’s historical winemaking traditions.
We are proud to bring a small amount of the rare Finca Iscorta De Peciña Gran Reserva 2010 into Ontario, exclusively available at the LCBO. You can purchase this wine online here.
Bodegas Hermanos Peciña Finca Iscorta De Peciña Gran Reserva 2010
From the organically farmed Finca Iscorta vineyard, and bush vines averaging 50 years, in calcareous clays at 500m, this is a blend of 95% Tempranillo, 3% Garnacha, 2% Graciano. After a ferment in stainless, this wine ages in used American oak for 4 years, and is bottled unfined and unfiltered, with a further 3 years in bottle before being released to the market. The wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered.
“The 2010 Finca Iscorta De Peciña Gran Reserva is their usual blend of Tempranillo with 3% Garnacha and 2% Graciano, sourced from 50-year-old vines from their Finca Iscorta vineyard in the Sonsierra zone; therefore, it is a single-vineyard bottling. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in well-seasoned American oak barrels for 48 months with manual and gravity rackings every six months. This feels very harmonious, combining some primary notes with more-developed tertiary aromas. The palate also reveals a rare mix of power and elegance that only the very best vintages are capable of. It has polished tannins, good volume, freshness and length. Drink or hold, there should be no rush. 18,000 bottles were filled in March 2015. Drink 2018 – 2030.” – 94+ points, Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate.
