Organic: noBodegas Cepas 21 is 100% Tempranillo from Spain’s northern plateau, where it’s known to produce concentrated reds with round, pure fruit. Aged just 8 months in French oak, this wine is meant to easily accompany food and just be overall approachable and drinkable.
A pet-project from a renowned producer in the region, Hito shows the benefits of modern winemaking from the region- it’s an overachiever in the glass. It drinks perfectly with slow-cooked and heavily-seasoned secondary cuts of beef or, it’s native pairing, lamb.
