Type of Wine: Red
Production Area: La Rioja
Harvest: The 2017 harvest begins at Bodegas Perica on September 13 and ends on September 25. After a vegetative cycle marked by the severe frost in April and by drought, the campaign offered very satisfactory results in quality and very limited production. The excellent health of the vineyard throughout the vegetative cycle, with total absence of pests or important diseases, has been one of the most outstanding characteristics of a harvest whose harvest began in August, making it the earliest in the history of Rioja. The good weather that accompanied the end of the cycle and the improvement in production expectations greatly reduced both by drought and by the effects of the heavy frost resulted in a high quality harvest.
