Franco Espanolas


Pedro Ballesteros MW

Tasting: Under 20 Rioja

Very traditional, a bit high in volatility, smooth.

Ben Henshaw

Tasting: Under 20 Rioja

Interesting development on nose: smoke, spice and earthy notes. Medium body but with nicely concentrated cherry and raspberry flavours. Very nice wine.

Annette Scarfe MW

Tasting: Under 20 Rioja

Prominent cedar oak on the attack with juicy, freshly picked plums on the elegant palate . Traditional style with balsamic notes.
