Add a spoonful of paprika, stir a little and cover with water.

Pairing: Viña Bujanda Crianza. An elegant and complex wine, with an intense purple-red color. Colorful and dense tear with aromas of black fruits, a true reflection of the Tempranillo variety. Perfect with spoon dishes such as marmitako or beans with partridge and red meats, baked lamb and medium cured cheeses.

A recipe for a typical dish from the north of Spain, from the region of La Rioja, perfect to pair with a great crianza wine from the same area, Viña Bujanda.

With potatoes as the main ingredient and accompanied by the strong flavor of the chorizo sausages, Rioja-style potatoes are a strong first course that deserves an intense wine, with character and aroma to accompany it. A great stew that must be served very hot to appreciate all the aromas it gives off.

Viña Bujanda Crianza is a good choice to accompany the dish, thanks to its intensity of flavor, its great volume and structure in the mouth, with an extraordinary retronasal aroma, which will help to intensify the flavors and harmonize the dish.
