Rioja Graciano, Contino

Rioja Graciano, Contino

Hand-harvested grapes from the San Gregorio Grande vineyard plot in Rioja Alavesa, which was planted with Graciano in 1979, were fermented in French oak vats prior to ageing in a mix of new and seasoned French and Hungarian oak barrels for 15 months. The wine has a deep purple colour with blue hues; very aromatic with wild berries, cassis notes and herbal spice; bright and fresh on the palate, with structured tannins on the long finish.
