Marques de Tomares Rioja Crianza 2017
This bottle of Rioja is bottled with looooove – hand picked 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano grapes. Aged for 12 months in American-French Oak Barrels before bottling. A gorgeous ruby Red with notes of Cherries, Strawberries and even black berries, a touch of peppercorn and oak. It taste however fruity, fresh and rounded – with elegant tannic structure.
Its flavor is smooth and round at the entrance with velvety and very pleasant sensations. Its tannic structure is elegant and very well constituted, with an outstanding aftertaste due to its great persistence.
Did you know, Rioja has 5 different classifications? Rioja, Rioja Crianza, Reserva, Gran Reserva and Gran Ananda (this grape has more tiers than my credit card companies). We’ll cover more in our next blog post!
