Calatayud is one of those denominations that seems to suffer from a prolonged lethargy, maybe because its neighbour, the Campo de Borja DO, takes the limelight, but this is far from the truth. The Garnacha Tinta, the grape that holds sway in the Campo de Borja because of its lovely nature and sweet roundness, reveals a character of its own, totally different in the Calatayud DO, and most especially at Bodegas Atteca. The Atteca fruit is ripe and dark, but somewhat less pleasant and rounded than in the Campo de Borja. Its character is rather more harsh in Calatayud, but the good use of oak tones down any possible harshness producing a wine that's intense but pleasant overall. Roasted and liquorice aromas mingle with hints of jams and spices creating a luscious wine that's also intense. It has features of a New World wine, yet never loses for one moment its marks of typicity. Juicy, enveloping and elegantly spiced, it will prove surprising for even savvy enthusiasts of red wine. A masterful Garnacha!
