Perfect for when a full bottle is just a little too much!
Intense cherry red colour. On the nose, there are notes of ripe fruit (blackcurrants and cherries) which are well integrated with toasted aromas of cinnamon, caramelised toffee, and butter. On the palate, this is a velvety wine with good structure and good fruit levels. High-quality tannins abound.
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.
