2017 Artífice Tinto, Borja Pérez, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain
Regular price £16.95
"Same as with the rest of the range, I had two vintages to taste side by side, which meant I also tasted the 2017 Artífice Tinto, which was super open, expressive and aromatic. I found it very attractive and exuberant, a cocktail of pumice stone and ground black peppercorns, spicy and mineral. Borja Pérez was a little worried because he thought the wine is too open; he hopes it becomes a little reduced in bottle. I thought it was great, and a faithful expression of the Listán Negro grape on the volcanic soils of Tenerife, with a fine texture and even finer tannins. 13,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2018." Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate. Drink 2019-2023 92+Pts.
