Fantastic young Rioja from one of Spain's greatest producers. Medium bodied, concentrated fruit but balanced and not cloying at all. This is a fresh, elegant, modern style of Rioja - no gold hair net on this bottle!
This wine is made by Alvaro Palacios he is regarded as one of the very best winemakers in Spain. He has his own vineyards in Priorat, near Barcelona, his main wine sells for about £600. This Rioja is his father's estate, but Alvaro makes the wine. It’s a modern style of Rioja which focuses on fresh, fruit driven flavours, which isn’t heavily oaked. The funky label represents all the colours you see in the vineyard.
This Valpolicella is ruby red in colour, with youthful highlights. Fragrant fruit with prominent notes...
Balanced, smooth, fruity, with a well-rounded, pleasant finish. Fine tannins without being overpowering. Good weight...
