We often forget that wine is a kind of food whose role is to accompany us at the dining table. Telmo Rodríguez has not forgotten and Corriente is named after and inspired by the commonplace wines which were drunk every day at mealtimes in nineteenth century La Rioja. A traditionally and typical Rioja style, pleasant and easy to drink and very affordable. An honest good quality wine ready to be drunk at any time.
What does this wine taste like?
It displays a Picota cherry red colour with a red tile coloured rim in the glass thanks more to the weak colour of the Grenache variety than the wine’s evolution. On opening the bottle, some vegetal notes are revealed which swiftly integrate into the wine’s fragrances. It is not overly intense, but offers aromas of red fruit, very refreshing touches of black pepper and bay leaves, and a certain alcoholic sensation which supports its somewhat rustic profile. A fresh wine with a good level of acidity, quite dry but also juicy and light-bodied. A very subtle bitter background lingers on at the finish.

Drinking and storing
A wine created to be enjoyed daily. If at first it seems too rustic, open the bottle and leave it to breathe while you prepare the meal. If you do not finish it with your meal, simply put the cork back in and keep it in a cool place for the following day.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker
Awful, dull and without taste
I think I rate this at the worst wine I have ever had from Vinissimus. It had no taste, no fruit, no character,,,tastless junk. While the write=up was good, sadly the wine is only fit to be put down the sink. Awful
Interesting mix of grapes
Solid, easy drinking red. Nothing notable about the wine but enjoyable with some red meats, needs to be warmed to room temperature or above
I'm all for organic wines, but frankly I haven't yet found one which is really up to scratch. This one is similar - a bit thin and reedy for my taste and frankly at this price you've got a lot of non-organic options that are simply far better.
Une découverte !
Le rioja est une belle région vinicole que je m'empresse de découvrir ! J'espère que celui-ci sera un bonheur à partager en famille ou avec des amis
Vinho muito fechado e amarrado na boca. Após respirar melhora um pouco. Pontuação exagerada de Parker (91) e pior ainda a de Suckling (94).
