Valenciso Reserva Rioja Magnum
Valenciso Reserva Rioja Magnum - This is one of the best Rioja's money can buy. A truly sumptuous wine.
It has a deep garnet colour. The nose opens up with ripe blackberries, roast meats, licorice and some spice. It is really soft with a depth of flavour and the classic combination of ripe red berry fruit, cedary oak and smooth, fine tannins. Very elegant, subtle and classically structured.
Valenciso, created in 1998, seek to make classically structured, subtle and elegantly fine wines using 100% Tempranillo grapes from low yielding old vines in the Rioja Alta. Winemaker Alicia Eyaralar uses exclusively French barriques, a third being new each year, to produce this terrific wine in very small quantities.
White and red meats, cheese, game.
