Gatito Loco Rioja Blanco contrasts to traditional Rioja. Lees ageing produces great texture in this crisp vibrant white Rioja. Stone peach, tropical mango and citrus notes bring this cat alive.
It is beyond doubt that Rioja is one of the foremost wine regions in the world, but that doesn't mean there is no potential to be tapped or no new approaches to be explored. The team behind de Alto definitely believe this and have been focusing more and more on what goes on in the vineyard than the bodega. Working with selected vineyards that have been converted and transformed into organic certified oases, the resulting wines are all about the fruit rather than winery and the ageing process. This €˜loco' approach to the accepted Riojan wisdom has put the winery in stark contrast to the establishment and they seized their chance to create something fun, fresh and lively. Gatito Loco was born.
