For the fourth consecutive year, Cornelio Dinastía has won a coveted Gran Oro and has also become the winery with the most awards in the competition.
Bodegas Cornelio Dinastía has once again reached the podium of the XIII Ecovino Awards, the international organic wine competition. It has done so in style: with a Gran Oro for its Vega Vella Blanco 2021, the highest award granted by the jury.
But not only that. It was also the winery with the most awards at the competition, winning a total of six medals.
The awards went to its wines Vega Vella Rosado 2021, Vega Vella Graciano 2019, Vega Vella Crianza 2017, Vega Vella s.TOP 2015 and Terra Vella Petra 2017. The first four have been awarded with a “gold”; and its new wine, Terra Vella Petra, has entered the list of winners with a “silver”.
The Ecovino 2022 Awards were made public after almost three hundred references from different wine regions were evaluated in an intense blind tasting held during the last week of April in the Sensory Analysis room of the Scientific-Technological Complex of the University of La Rioja.
The awards ceremony will take place on Thursday 26th May in the Aula Magna of the Quintiliano Building of the University of La Rioja.
ABOUT VEGA VELLA BLANCO 2021
Vega Vella Blanco is made from a coupage of Sauvignon Blanc and Garnacha Blanca from the winery’s own vineyards located in Rioja Oriental. The vineyards have been organically farmed for more than three decades and only treated with natural products, their vines produce a low yield of high quality grapes.
The fruit is harvested by hand. For its production, they extract the must after cold maceration with the skins. It undergoes alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 16ºC to safeguard the varietal aromas, where the tropical fruit and citrus blend stand out. The result is a fresh and powerful wine in the mouth, with a pleasant acidity provided by the sauvignon blanc and a pleasant creaminess given by the garnacha blanca.
A perfect wine to accompany white fish and seafood, rice dishes, pasta and potatoes.
Vega Vella Blanco has also been recognised in other international competitions such as Mundus Vini Biofach and Berliner Wine Trophy.
