SEÑORÍO DE LIBRARES 'EL MARUJO' RIOJA JOVEN 2022
Breathing new life into their family’s historic bodega, Señorío de Librares, sisters Clara and Patricia Espinosa are building a reputation for artisanal Riojas that are unrivalled in flavour and price.
The Espinosas have cultivated top-quality fruit in Rioja Baja for over 150 years – the sisters’ great-great-grandfather Pedro won first prize for his wines at the 1878 Paris World Fair.
In contrast to the region’s big brands, Clara and Patricia eschew the use of international varieties and bought-in fruit, farming 10ha of Tempranillo, Graciano, Garnacha, and Viura around the town of El Villar de Arnedo. Harnessing organic viticulture and a traditional-meets-modern approach to winemaking, they craft characterful wines that excel in value.
A mainstay on the wine lists at Noble Rot restaurants, 'El Marujo' is soft and juicy Rioja Joven at its finest.
