Ruby-red color. On the nose it surprises you with its powerful fruity character mingling with reminders of its noble aging, traces of coconut, toffee and attractive wild herb nuances. After a powerful attack the sensation of soft, supple volume gradually extends across the palate to end with a long finish.
Founded in 1985, Baron de Ley is a single-estate winery located on the grounds of a 16th century monastery on the east bank of the Ebro River in Mendavia, in the Rioja Baja region. The estate spans 175 acres growing primarily Tempranillo and small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, while focusing on high-quality Reserva and Gran Reserva wines. Based on the Chateau concept, grapes are sourced exclusively from the property's estate vineyards. This is an innovative step in a region where bodegas typically source grapes from independent growers throughout the area.
