On our search for a powerful wine that could stand up to these strong flavors, we came to La Guardia in La Rioja Alavesa. And, yet again, we chose Artadi Pagos Viejos 2004 (DOCaRioja) by the Artadi winery. This is a wine that makes its presence felt with its aromas of graphite, blackberries and cranberries with floral notes. And it offers layers of flavor, as well as pleasant tannin well integrated with the wood. The ideal companion for Gilda.
