2017 Glorioso Rioja Seleccion Especial Crianza

"Delicious and smoother than a dolphin in silk pyjamas!"

A special edition of excellent wine launched in limited quantities on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Bodegas Palacio winery located in the prestigious Spanish wine region of Rioja DOCa.

Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep garnet red

Nose

Of great intensity and cleanliness where highlights the details of red fruit of the forest like blackcurrant and blackberries and in second term we find delicate aromas of spices contributed by the French oak such as menthol, black pepper and cinnamon. A delicate and subtle finish where a slight mineral touch can be seen.

Palate

In the mouth it is silky and enveloping, with a fine and sweet tannin that brings sensations of a wine with structure but at the same time respectful. A refreshing ending due to its tight acidity with memories of sweet coffee.

2017 Glorioso Rioja Seleccion Especial Crianza
