Intense black-cherry color with good depth of color and hardly any signs of evolution. Very expressive aromas on the nose with notes of liquorice, cinnamon, and black pepper, with just a subtle hint of the long cask-aging, thanks to its great complexity and ripe, concentrated fruit. Fresh and easy to drink on the palate, good backbone, and lovely, polished tannins.
90% Tempranillo, 7% Graciano, 3% Mazuelo. Marques de Riscal is one of the oldest Rioja wineries. Founded in Elciego (Alava) in 1858 by Guillermo Hurtado de Amezaga, from the outset it has been a point of reference in the winemaking business at both national and international level. Today their wines can be found in nearly 108 countries to which they export 65% of their output.
