FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Perfect with Pasta with red sauce and meat, Risotto, Roasted lamb ribs, Roasted red meats, Specialty Spanish prosciutto.
This Spanish red wine is medium, ruby-coloured robe with a brick red rim.
On the nose, it’s deep and enticing. The first impression of this wine from Rioja is defined by some spicy notes of vanilla and clove, along with fine leather, smoke and withered herbs. As the wine opens, it shows notes of ripe red fruit, some remembrances of flowers and a dash of tobacco, cocoa and arabica coffee.
On the palate, this wine is fresh, linear and smooth. Notes of red berries, Havana cigars and Oriental spices. Tense acidity, medium body and a long, dreamy persistance.
