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)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or buy 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified (as a full pack) to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
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
We discovered this small, modern, winery in the heart of Rioja over a decade ago and we were immediately taken by the exceptional quality of the winemaking, combined with their extraordinarily attractive pricing. These have become a firm favourite and some of our best selling red wines from Spain.
If you thought all Rioja was much the same - think again. From the big traditional mellow Ruconia Reserva with its long wood ageing, to the light bright and crisp elegance of Sandra Bravo's high altitude Sierra do Tolono, via the exuberant plumpness of the Joven Viña Diezmo and the restrained refreshment of the Artuke, this case 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.
