    Region: Rioja, Spain

    Varietal: Tempranillo

    Style: Smooth & Supple

    Item no. 91670

    Winemaker's Notes:

    The three varietals on which Contino wines are based are: Tempranillo which gives a good balance between sugar, color and acidity; Mazuelo which gives good tannin structure; and Graciano which has good color and a powerful aromatic characteristic.

    Deep red cherry color, on nose an explosion of ripe berry fruits and hints of licorice and balsamic notes with an elegant touch of oak.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Open and downright fruity for an old-school wine. The bouquet is sweet and rubbery, while the palate delivers plum and blackberry along with chocolate and vanilla. Big tannins are firm but friendly, and the body is sturdy. Not sharp but modestly aggressive.

    Good full red. Sexy, perfumed aromas of strawberry liqueur, kirsch, flowers and spices. Supple but juicy and penetrating, with well-delineated berry, mint and spice flavors. Finishes dry-edged and firm, with very good grip.
