Summary of  “Rioja looks back and ahead” by Josh Raynolds.

2016, 2015 and 2014 Rioja´s vintages have been considered exceptional in both traditionally manufactured and by modern leaning producers.

La Rioja´s regulatory counsel, the Consejo Regulador, which deals with designating the regions wines and classifies wines according to the time that each spends in an oak barrel or stainless steel tank as “Tinto”, or young wine, “Crianza”, “Reserva” and “Gran Reserva” for fine wines. At the beginning of this year a new classification has been developed permitting producers to show the location of the vineyard.

Raynolds analyzes the last vintages. In 2017 weather affected the fruit negatively so we have to wait to taste the results, as opposed to the 2016 and 2015 noteworthy vintages.
