CONSEJO DE LA ALTA CRIANZA 2016
DOCa Rioja - AMONG MANY, THERE IS ALWAYS ONE WHO STANDS OUT AND IS PERCEIVED.
We prioritise smoothness, with notes of dark fruit and spices.
A complex wine; an explosion of sensations in the mouth and nose.
Wild fruits and wood are coupled with fresh, herbaceous aromas and flavours. Notes of honey.
Drink now or lay it down for 5 to 8 years.
It is a wine to enjoy on any occasion. A good partner for improvised discussions.
Salads, meat, pasta dishes, white fish, good with biscuits with chocolate... A cake with walnuts and raisins, red meat...
