Dark cherries and plums with fresh thyme and roasted spices. Medium-bodied with fine-tuned and polished tannins. Fruity, with a mixture of red and black cherries, delivered in an elegant palate with a chalky-textured frame. Tempranillo. Vegan. Quite drinkable now.” 91 Points[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_progress_bar values=”%5B%7B%22label%22%3A%22BODY%22%2C%22value%22%3A%2280%22%7D%2C%7B%22label%22%3A%22TANNIN%22%2C%22value%22%3A%2275%22%7D%2C%7B%22label%22%3A%22ACIDITY%22%2C%22value%22%3A%2270%22%7D%5D”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_tta_accordion][vc_tta_section title=”Allergens” tab_id=”1669199419339-a1c6278f-7078617c-ff99d708-fb89″][vc_column_text]Contains: Sulphites[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Tasting Notes” tab_id=”1669199419345-0ba7893e-a69c617c-ff99d708-fb89″][vc_column_text]COLOUR
Cherry red.

Aromas of ripe red fruits (raspberries, blackcurrants), spicy notes (vanilla, light brown), red licorice and fine nuances of toasted wood.

Ripe tannins that give a solid structure highlights. Acidity makes it lively and still has a long life ahead of it. Good fruit weight on the trip and long endurance.

Ages well.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Food Pairing” tab_id=”1669199576699-0f5f17fe-3234617c-ff99d708-fb89″][vc_column_text]DISHES THAT GO WELL WITH THIS WINE

La Rioja is one of Spain’s most famous wine regions and divided into three zones: Rioja Alta, Rioja Oriental and Rioja Alavesa. The wines are mostly red, made from berry-scented grapes such as Garnacha and Tempranillo, and the vineyards run along the banks of the Ebro River, which stretches for around 100 kilometers.
