Review:

The Atikete wine is one more example of the great red wines produced by Jordi Llorens at his cellar in the Conca de Barberà area. Using the semi-carbonic maceration method, Jordi uses native yeasts (as he always does) to conduct the alcoholic fermentation and extract the best qualities from the grapes. The wine then ages in 225 and 400-litre used oak barrels which helps to shape the wine without losing any of the fruity aromas it has acquired.

This wine combines the freshness of the indigenous red Grenache grapes with Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon ones. Jordi Llorens is a strong believer in working with grape varieties which adapt best to the local environment and this is the case with Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, two grapes which thrive in the Conca de Barberà. The blend also includes a small amount of Bobal grapes. Jordi and his clients love this variety — a grape very common in the wine-making regions of Manchuela and Utiel-Requena, but used much less often in Catalonia.

When served, the wine offers us aromas of the forest, almost as if it were inviting us to walk among the vineyards it came from. Aromas of wild fruit, flowers, and hints of shrubs and thickets, combine with a fine trace of liqueur to give elegance to this firm-bodied and delicately spicy wine. You can just notice the wood, but the soil is clearly felt; wild cherries, blackcurrants and a hint of smoke add to its aroma, making the Atikete a fresh complete wine — a personal but accessible wine, able to seduce lovers of great wines as well as recent converts to wine-appreciation.

Quienes desconfían de los vinos naturales deberían probar un vino como éste o cualquiera de los de este productor, como su Blankeforti por ejemplo, de precio todavía más asequible. Como todos los prejuicios, hay que conocer más vinos para distinguir un buen trabajo de un mal trabajo, y no menospreciar una manera de entender el vino como tal. Con Atikete yo he disfrutado de un vino fragante, asequible, lo que todos conocemos como un vino de terruño, de paisaje y derriba otro prejuicio, el de las variedades internacionales, si han arraigado bien en el lugar, por qué no. Me ha recordado el estilo de los vinos italianos: directos, honestos, muy bebibles. En cuanto al precio, más que correcto, pero si a alguien le parece elevado, que tenga en cuenta todo lo que conlleva, de artesanía y naturalidad. Yo, lo añado a la lista de mi bodega personal.
