The name Ramírez de la Piscina traces its lineage back to the Navarra Kings and Crusade wars of 11th c. San Vicente de la Sonsierra village in the heart of La Rioja Alta.
"An honest red Rioja with a few years of maturity under its belt, yet with lively vigour as well. Aged in a combination of French and American oak for 15 months, this is medium-full-bodied, with essences of dried cherry, vanilla, smoke and cola along with a salty tang for backbone. Drink it now with roast lamb, grilled sausages or roast ham or cellar it for up to five more years."
(Beppi Crosariol, The Globe and Mail, 2017)
