2010 Bodegas Ruconia
|Grapes||Tempranillo, Graciano, Mazuelo|
This really is a superb vintage of this wine, so much to love in the more traditional Rioja style here, liquorice, coffee, meat juices, leather, redcurrants, herbs and cedar. But the palate then delivers everything in such a balanced style that it is a pure joy from first sip to last. L&S (Oct 2016)

Brooding and big-boned yet polished, offering toasty new oak against a backdrop of spicy black fruit, with the depth and structure to age further. Drinking range: 2020 - 2026 Rating: 91 Decanter Magazine(Feb 2019)
Intense, dark, red cherry colour. Strong aromas of tobacco, toasty notes, creamy and ripe blackberry aromas. Round, velvety and full of volume, leaving toasted, spicy notes on the palate.Winemaker's notes(May 2015)
We discovered this small, modern, winery in the heart of Rioja Alta about fifteen years ago and we continue to be struck by the exceptional quality of the fruit and the wine-making here. Bodegas Ruconia was founded in 1986 and have nearly 20 HA of vineyards around the villages of Cenicero and Urunuela, they first came onto our radar in the early 2000's, just after their new state of the art winery was built in 2001. The family have always combined very high quality wine, with extraordinarily attractive pricing, the perfect marriage! These have become a firm favourite and some of our best selling red wines from Spain, year after year.
If you thought all Rioja was much the same - think again. This case will take you on a tour of the exciting, evolving landscape here. From the bigger, more traditional mellowness of Ruconia’s Reserva with its long barrel ageing, via the light bright and crisp elegance of Sandra Bravo's high altitude Sierra do Tolono, to the more exuberant full on fruit led style of the Artuke wines, this selection encompasses so much of what is exciting and tasty about Rioja.
Rioja - it may have been around for years, but it's bang up to date.
