he same as with most of the other 2016s, I caught the 2016 Finca de Los Locos in tank after its élevage as it was about to be bottled. This single vineyard is on a terrace of the Ebro River at only 120 meters in altitude, on sandy and gravel soils with a high percentage of active limestone (26%!). As in the previous vintage, the aging was in 500- and 600-liter barrels and one 3,500-liter oak foudre and lasted one year. It's a little balsamic, very young with that baby fat that will melt down with time in bottle. This is a vineyard that produces powerful wine, and it's not especially old. There are abundant, fine-grained tannins and integrated acidity.

Description

This cuvée is a tribute to the two brothers' paternal grandfather who bought the Peñaescalera vine in Baños de Ebro.
A vine with a veru low yield, located at the high end of the village, so for a while no one harvested it anymore.
And as the soil was very stony, no one would have been "loco" (crazy) enough to buy it in the 50's.
But the loco grandfather did it, and its 2.8 hectares now called Finca de los Locos, produced a magnificent wine. And we are all crazy about it!

Vinification

First selection of the grapes in the vine, only the best are used.
Then these are transported ti the cellar in large but shallow baskets so that they do not crush one another and the berries stay in an optimal condition.
A second selection is made at the cellar on a sorting table then the bunches are de-stemmed and sent by gravity to the steel tanks for fermentation. Only natural indigenous yeasts are used. The malolactic fermentation takes place in casks from 500 to 3,500 litres. The wine stays there to age for 15 more months.

Tasting analysis

This is the most powerful of all the Artuke brothers' cuvées.
deep red colour. On the nose, the spiciness of the Graciano (20% of the blend) is brought out.
On the palate, a very elegant black fruit and Mediterranean notes with a nice acidity.
The finish is very long. Not bad for a mad house!

Storage potential

10-12 years.

Serving

Decant preferably and serve in a large glass.
