Gatito Loco – Rioja
Certified organic, Tempranillo & Garnacha
Gatito Loco Rioja Tinto is made in Rioja, but not in the traditional style with no oak treatment. This cat has great freshness, crunchy bright red and black fruits. Juicy smooth finish.
Rioja is one of the foremost wine regions in the world, but that doesn’t mean there is no potential to be tapped or no new approaches to be explored. The team behind de Alto definitely believe this and have been focusing more and more on what goes on in the vineyard than the bodega. Working with selected vineyards that have been converted and transformed into organic certified oases, the resulting wines are all about the fruit rather than winery and the ageing process. This ‘loco’ approach to the accepted Riojan wisdom has put the winery in stark contrast to the establishment and they seized their chance to create something fun, fresh and lively. Gatito Loco was born.
