The Fernandez Gomez family has a history in viticulture that stretches back for more than a century, but it was the vision of the latest generation that first brought their production to the commercial market through the emergence of Bodegas Tierra. With nearly 80 acres of prime vineyard holdings in Rioja Alavesa, some containing original hundred-year-old plantings, it’s not surprising Tierra quickly earned an impressive reputation as an estate grower and producer. Efforts taken by Tierra focus on maintaining grape integrity from vineyard to bottle so true character is maintained and expressed.
This joven Tempranillo is rich cherry in color with primary aromas of fruit and spice. Minimal oak presence highlights the purity of the fruit. The palate is fresh and lean, with deep savory notes punctuating medium-weight structure on the finish.

Fresher styles of Tempranillo like this one are wonderful with baked pasta dishes, and any dish with a tomato based sauce (like pizza).
