Professional Wine Reviews for Ritme Celler Priorat Tinto 2016

Rated 91 by Wine Advocate
I tasted two vintages of the entry-level red, the youngest of which was the 2016 Ritme Negre, which is young and fleshy, with good acidity and freshness. It's approachable, tasty and easy to drink. It's mostly Cariñena with 3% Garnacha.
Rated 90 by Wine Spectator
Berry and cherry flavors edge toward kirsch and coulis notes in this heady red. Light, firm tannins and tart, citrusy acidity focus the racy elements. Vivid, and still coming into balance. Carinyena and Garnatxa. Drink now through 2026.

Winery Ritme Celler

Region: Cataluna

For thousands of years, Spain's beautiful wine region of Catalunya has been a powerful center of wine production, with much archaeological evidence to suggest that quality vines were being cultivated in the fine Catalan soils many hundreds of years before even the first Roman settlers arrived. The wonderful coastal Mediterranean climate of the region creates an ideal environment for viticulture, and the excellent conditions are improved further by the mineral rich soils which cover much of the region's valleys and hillsides. As a result, the bodegas and wineries which operate in Catalunya are able to grow a wide variety of imported and native grape varietals, and are able to produce their famous sparkling Cava wines in large quantities, alongside the many still red and white wine bottles which are brought out each year to critical acclaim.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
