Rioja isn't only about big oaky reds. This Tempranillo is a lighter, modern wine that still packs all the fruit character you expect from this grape.. Lovely and fragrant with juicy red fruit aromas and flavours such as plum, blackberry, cherry and cranberry. There's a soft spice too and a pleasantly fresh finish. Approachable and easy to drink with gentle tannins on the finish.
Try this with grilled meats or cheesy pasta dishes
