The wine

Made by the Torre de Oña winery as another great wine from the La Rioja Alta catalogue, Finca Martelo is a faithful expression of the landscape and terroirs of Rioja Alavesa. Its modern style, lively colours and aromas, and the power and fruitiness expected in a contemporary wine, sit alongside the refined rusticity the chalky Alava soils bring and the authentic and traditional side to its character. Serious and elegant, as easy to understand as it is to enjoy.

What does this wine taste like?

Finca Martelo is a juicy wine, thrilling the mouth with plentiful red and black fruit. A wise and careful ageing process in wood is appreciated in its seductive and well-balanced character and fresh sensations. It makes no attempt to hide the power of its modern profile but the character of a traditional wine and other more evolved touches are never far away. A top-quality Reserva wine produced by a winery steeped in expertise creating classic Rioja wines.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

I found a very complete 2015 Finca Martelo that followed the style and the quality path of the previous vintages. The release of this wine was an important milestone for Torre de Oña, where they look for the typicity of Rioja Alavesa through a blend of old-vine Tempranillo with 6% other varieties (Mazuelo, Garnacha and even white Viura). 2015 was a healthy harvest, and the wine shows a nice combination of power and elegance. It's clean and modern but with a traditional twist, some developed aromas and very fine chalky tannins from the limestone-rich soils. 80,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2019.
