Marqués de Riscal is one of Rioja's oldest wineries. It's only with almost two centuries of experience that you can craft a summer-fruit-and-vanilla-packed red this delectable.
Aged in both French and American oak, it's a structured concoction of ripe red berries, toasted oak, rich vanilla, mocha and black pepper
Intense blackberry, blackcurrant, undertones of mint, spice and cigar box on the nose. On the palate are plenty of blackcurrant and cassis, fresh mint, subtle oak and soft tannins. Great with venison.
Ribera wine commands some of the heftiest prices in Spain. Finca Carelio was initially classified as Ribera del Duero DO wine priced at £15. But we added Castilian grapes to pump up the juiciness.
A heady blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha, from 30-year-old vines, and aged for three years in American oak barrels, it's one of the finest expressions of Rioja Reserva you're likely to taste.
