2015 Pedro Martinez Alesanco Rosado Rioja

SKU #1254708

Based in the Rioja Alta village of Badarán, Martínez Alesanco is a truly original bodega producing tasty, characterful wine for laughably low prices. They are entirely self-reliant in grapes, all of which are grown in their home village of Badarán, one of the coldest zones of Rioja Alta. The vineyards are closer to the Sierra de la Demanda mountains, a range whose elevation and visible snow covered peaks are even more dramatic than the Sierra Cantabria range to the north. Martínez Alesanco's Rosado is made from Garnacha and white Viura grapes in a typical "clarete" style for which this river valley is justly famous (the vineyards that Muga sources for their popular rosé are not too far away). Bright red berries, juicy blood orange and ripe citrus fruit combine to produce this mouthwatering, delicious rosé. You simply must try this one. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

Perfect summer Rose that I will stock up on to take me into the fall for our warmer SF days in September and October. I love the slight creaminess of this rose with hits of mixed berries and strawberries. Not sweet but just enough fruitiness to give it some character and zing. It also is an amazing value for $9.99! Stock up before its gone.

This wonderful Rosado doesn't just present one of the best Rosé values in the store, but one of the best overall value wines in our inventory. The bright strawberry and mixed berry profile, combined with unusual weight and creamy texture provided by the addition of viura, makes for one of the most unique and drinkable rosés in the store. Stock up on this one now and enjoy the summer of Rosado.
