Get to know: Bodegas Palacio, Glorioso Crianza 2 for £26 OFFER
2 bottles of one of our favourite Riojas for a discounted price of £26
Clean and very intense, vibrant nose of the red berry fruit of the Tempranillo grape combined perfectly with the fine toasty vanilla aromas added by ageing in French oak to make an elegant wine with its own personality. A very expressive Rioja, where the ripeness of the fruit brings freshness and liveliness to the palate and leads to a long, silky finish with a velvety mouthfeel.
Try this with lamb chops.
"Rioja is the oldest and most popular wine region in Spain. The traditional Crianza, aged in oak for at least 12 months, is a great place to discover this style. The Glorioso stands out with it's vibrant fruit. I'd enjoy this with some grilled lamb chops."
Glorioso is a historic range from the Entrecanales family started in 1917. Today it sits alongside the Cosme Palacio wines as part of this small to medium sized estate in Rioja Alavesa.
The winery have been on a course of serious investment in sustainability: solar powered winery, capture and reuse of rainwater, minimal sprays (only when needed, and Rioja is not an easy place to avoid disease and rot etc), investing in their communities and their workforce.
The wines are showing seriously well against similarly priced Riojas, superbly crafted by Almudena Alberca MW, first female Spanish MW, director of winemaking.
