‘Everyone accepts that 2020 was a difficult vintage in Rioja, but truly great winemakers always rise above the challenges of individual growing seasons. First made in 2013, La Condenada has slowly but surely established itself as one of Spain's most complex reds and this release is the best yet. Blending Tempranillo with 20% Graciano, Garnacha and Palomino, all planted in 1920 at 560 metres, this is rich, dense and purposeful, with lovely purity and perfume, very little wood, filigree tannins and juicy, yet structured blueberry, black cherry and strawberry fruit. 2025-40.’ – Tim Atkin, 2023 Rioja Report, 100/100

‘As with other vintages, there is a plus of complexity and depth in the 2020 La Condenada, which mentions the Paraje Camino del Ciego from Baños de Ebro where the vineyard that names the wine is located, a 0.75-hectare plot . It's a little shy with faint floral aromas and a note reminiscent of cereals, undeveloped and needing to burn that baby fat with some more time in bottle. But the palate is phenomenal— textured and fine-grained with chalky tannins, fresh and vibrant, clean and precise with some acid berry flavors that make me salivate. This is going to develop nicely in bottle and for a long time. 2023 – 2034.’ – Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate, 97/100

Producer information ‘Artuke has seen one of the best progressions in Rioja in the last few years and is one of the finest young family wineries in the region’, wrote the Wine Advocate and according to Tim Atkin ‘Arturo de Miguel makes some of the greatest reds in Spain.’ Brothers Arturo and Kike de Miguel biodynamically farm 30 hectares of vines planted between 1920 and 2013. Their father and ancestors have been farming the land in the northern part of Rioja Alavesa for over a century. Their goal is to take their winery to the next level thus placing emphasis on the terroir, in order to create wines with remarkable purity.
