PVA Rioja Event
The final word on the astounding series of events from Snooth's PVA Wine Writer's Seminar
If you read my post from yesterday (and if you didn’t, feel free to do it now…I promise I’ll be here when you get back…) I introduced you to Spain’s Rioja wine region. In it I mentioned one of the unique characteristics of Rioja was the strict aging requirements of the wines of this region, and how the intent of this law was to present wines ready to be consumed upon release. Theoretically, once a wine is released it is ready for consumption – i.e. no additional aging is required.
I also mentioned that there are many exceptions to this rule, ones that demonstrate Rioja’s impressive ability to age. In this seminar Fabiano provided several examples of impressive age worthy Riojas, proving their remarkable ability to age among the finest wines of the world.
