With six wines scoring 90 points or more, Bodegas Sonsierra is once again among the best wineries in the Rioja 2020 Special Report. In this fifth edition of the eagerly awaited report, the British wine critic and renowned Rioja expert Tim Atkin gives his personal perspective on the region’s wines.
This will be the first of a series of interviews in this blog in which we get to know some of the winegrowers that are part of the Bodegas Sonsierra team. Here we are talking to Javier Aldama, a young geologist turned vintner. A son and grandson of vintners, Javi loves vines and has taken some of the fine photos of our vineyards that you can find on the winery's social networks – another of his passions.
With a score of 91 points for Sonsierra Tempranillo Blanco 2018, Sonsierra Crianza 2016, Sonsierra Reserva 2014 and Pagos de la Sonsierra 2014, plus a score of 92 points for Sonsierra Gran Reserva 2013, the highly respected American wine critic James Suckling has given his stamp of approval to Sonsierra’s wines and placed them among the highest-ranked wines from La Rioja.
