RegionSpain’s most famous wine region is renowned for creating top quality wines with exceptional ageing ability. It lies in northern Spain, along the River Ebro from which the region’s name derived. Elegance and poise is the hallmark of wines made here. Rioja’s different soil types together with the use of modern and traditional growing practices allow winemakers to produce a wide range of wines with different personalities, although always within the framework of the Denominación de Origen Calificada (D.O.Ca.) regulations.
Tasting NotesDeep cherry red in colour with purple tones. The bouquet is a luscious, fruity scent of sweet cherries and raspberries. The aromas are mirrored on the palate, with additional hints of violet and licquorice. Beautifully soft, harmonious tannins and subtly sweet, spicy notes linger on the finish.
Food PairingA good companion to rice dishes, pasta with red sauce, grilled meats and braised shoulder of lamb.
Best ServedAt 15º C
Technical InformationThe grapes are harvested at optimal maturity. A period of cold maceration (48-72 hours) follows to extract the colour of the skins and the fruit aromas. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks takes place at a low temperature 21-23ºC over period of 8-10 days.
About this wine“Very Good, Strong Recommendation: Dark cherries and earthy vegetation accentuate the nose. Piquant red fruit and dark roasted coffee beans create a juicy and earthy flavor profile. Supple and round in texture, it is smooth and light on the palate.” Ultimate Wine Challenge 2015
