Crianza DO Rioja, Bodegas Montebuena 2016
An intensely layered centre with mauve tones near the edge. Lively, clean and layered. Clean aromas characteristic of young tempranillo; aromas of wild fruits, blackberries, raspberries and sloes. Floral notes and a slight
nuttiness on the finish. Shows a certain amount of characteron the attack, although its acidity is offset by the warm, liqueur-like feel. On the finish, it is pleasant and a little treacly, and at the very end slightly satiny. The varietal character is noticeable once more on the palate, with hints liquorice and dairy products on the aftertaste. Recommended with most types of Spanish tapas, pasta and meat dishes.
