- Culled from 100% low-yield, old vine Graciano, and grown in the warm Mediterranean climate of eastern Rioja Baja, the grapes for Rio Madre are hand-harvested into small baskets to minimize bruising and are fermented in steel tanks to preserve their freshness, then aged in barrel for nearly a year. No Tempranillo. No Garnacha. Just the micro-trend darling of the Rioja, Graciano.
