Pedro Ballesteros MW

Tasting: Under 20 Rioja

Deliciously decadent, with extraordinary vitality in the palate and a long unique, finish. A jewel at this price.

Ben Henshaw

Tasting: Under 20 Rioja

Complex nose, quite grippy but fresh and more-ish. Touch dry but amazing fruit. Classy, complex and long.

Annette Scarfe MW

Tasting: Under 20 Rioja

More restrained, mineral style with elegant tannins. Youthful and fresh – feminine and complex. Long length. A classic example and still fresh.
