Bujanda Tinto is a Rioja Joven, which means "young" and refers to the fact that it sees no oak aging. It is made from 100% Tempranillo from estate vineyards in the Rioja Alta and Alavesa sub-regions. These grapes are harvested through September and October and then fermented in stainless steel tanks for 17 days.

Tasting Notes

This wine is ruby red with purple highlights. Fresh and fruity, it is a perfect sipper and refreshing even in warmer weather (try it with a slight chill!). The nose shows red berry, blue fruit, and spice, while the palate is medium bodied with food-friendly acidity.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with migas, paella, smoked salmon, or sashimi tuna.
