Vega Piedra Rioja Tinto 2014 is a great value oak-aged Rioja from Bodegas Carlos Serres in Haro. Soft, approachable and aromatic with comforting and generous ripe berry fruit aromas, with hints of spice. The palate is light and plummy, with a long juicy finish. The grapes for this lovely wine come from the family company's 200 hectares around Haro and Briones in the Rioja Alta region. The quality of the wine is a result of the excellence of the fruit that comes from these vineyards. When the first vintage was produced in 2003 it was with the aim of producing a classic style of Rioja which combined a modern fruit driven style with real substance and quality. Unlike a lot of young Riojas this is achieved by ageing the wine in old American and French oak barrels.
