Tab 2The Viñedos De Páganos winery in Rioja is surrounded by the vineyards of El Puntido, a steep slope of 25 hectares with a southerly orientation that was planted with Tempranillo in 1975. Thanks to limited yields and to careful viticulture, Viñedos De Páganos Rioja El Puntido is produced. It is a wine that is very much of its terroir, made to highlight the quality of the Tempranillo and the soil it grows in. Unlike many other Riojas, El Puntido is not made with traditional classifications in mind. It could be marketed as a Rioja Reserva, but that is not its raison d'être. Instead, the Eguren family make the best wine they can from the raw materials they possess and they age it as they see fit. In the modern fashion, El Puntido is aged for 18 months in French oak barriques before being bottled.
