''Outstanding red wine. Sinewy and fine, almost pinosity here. Fragrant red berry and spice perfume. More of the same to taste, with a light amaro note running through. Sleek and tightly wound but with a yielding, light juiciness that feels seductive and moreish. Superb, restrained, fine and finesse. The plum and berry concentration shows through, with darker fruit emerging.'' 92 Points, Gourmet Traveller Wine Guide

''Sweet fruit, smoke and firm tannins with some of Graciano's bracing acidity that lifts the wine. Very nice and refreshing with good structure behind it. Should age pretty well.''Alistair Cooper,

The balance and freshness of this is beautiful and makes it so hard to resist. Just a perfectly poised cleft of deep, dark fruit and a lick of cherry skin. There are beautiful layers of floral aromatics too and clean fresh red fruit.

This Rioja comes from a small, terroir-focused winery – that’s owned and run by brothers Arturo and Kike. It is a crianza but the oak is so subtle and simply softens the feel and adds a ripe, roundness to the fine tannins as part of the gentle, supple mouthfeel.
