2011 Artadi El Carretil

A vineyard that is said to convey ‘strength and balance’ in the wines it produces, El Carretil envelops the senses, has a marked minerality, fibrous tannins and rich flavors of fresh red and black forest fruit. Deep and complex, with great texture in its incredibly long finish, El Carretil is a wine full of life and energy. Meant to drink now or age up to 50-100 years.

About the Winery

Artadi Viñedos & Vinos located in the heart of Rioja, is owned by Juan Carlos López de la Calle, who has been around wine in Rioja for his entire life.

Dedication to detailed, delicate and hard work is something he learned at an early age, and these are governing principles for his three award-winning wineries in Rioja, Navarra and Alicante. Artadi’s ideology is that “the value of a great wine is intimately linked to the land and its people.” The conviction to safeguard this intimate link is what drove Juan Carlos to make wine in three distinct regions of Spain.

Producing wines made from the single most important variety of each appellation, working with estate-grown fruit and developing a team of viticultural experts that respect the traditions and climate of each region are Bodegas Artadi’s fundamental keys to success. If asked, Juan Carlos would say the peculiarity of different soils, disparate climates and the inherent excellence of the grape varieties are the genesis of the authenticity of Artadi’s portfolio of wines. Indeed when one looks at Artadi’s contribution to Spanish winemaking, we find wines with character, personality and identity that reflect their roots in natural viticulture.
