Rioja’s joven (“young”) reds are aged two to three months at most; this example showcases their lively, fruity charm.
What You Need To Know
Rioja is best known for its glorious gran reservas—red wines that age for half a decade before release, the best of which improve in bottle for decades beyond. For immediate drinking, though, its jovens make a better bet. Based on the same signature grape, Tempranillo, joven Riojas are bottled not long after they’re finished fermenting, in the winter or spring following harvest. Generally oak-free, as with this example from Bodegas Riojanas, they’re fruity and straightforward, with lighter tannins that make them suitable for a wide range of foods. Bodegas Riojanas is a famous winery founded in 1890 that’s located in Rioja Alta, a subzone that’s a source of many of Rioja’s best wines.
