Grape: 80% Tempranillo, 5% Mazuelo, 15% Garnacha
The winery at Rioja Vega was overhauled in 2001 and their wines have surged forward.
From Tempranillo with a little Mazuelo and Garnacha, this smooth, soft, richly-fruited red, has spice and vanilla from 12 months in American oak.
A bright wine. Complex array of aromas on the nose, with notes of red fruits and liquorice and subtle hints of toast, spices and cinnamon. Silky, pleasant and enveloping on the palate, long, balanced, with very good tannins.
Great with grilled red meats and vegetables.
This 1.5 litre bottle comes presented in its own gift box
