Bodegas Palacio - "Cosme Palacio" Crianza Tinto 2013

£15.50Price

The wine has been described by many as an absolute classic. Aged for 13 months in French oak barrels and then for 9 months in bottle, it has an intense cherry-red hue which is beautifully bright in the glass. Aromas of ripe black fruit, spice and liquorice dominate the bouquet while on the palate the ripeness of the fruit stands-out alongside the sweet tannins and elegant, lingering finish.

    TEMPRANILLO - Tempranillo is the basis of the finest red wines from Spain and Portugal but has also been successfully adopted in the New World. Deep in colour with moderate tannins, tempranillo offers a wide range of aromas and flavours ranging from strawberries, blackcurrants and cherries in younger wines from cooler regions, to prunes, chocolate and tobacco in aged wines from warmer climes.

  • Region

    RIOJA, SPAIN - Arguably Spain's top wine region, Rioja is home to bright, berry-scented, barrel-aged red wines made from Tempranillo and Garnacha. Located in northern Spain, Rioja is bordered by the Cantabrian Mountains whose shelter provides relatively warm, dry conditions. Soils vary from place to place, with the finest containing high levels of limestone, and Graciano and Carignan are also prevalent in the region’s reds, the best of which are matured in new oak barrels. Rioja blanco is also now developing into a successful white wine variety.
