“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
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.

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.
