Product Description
Details

Produced by Finca de la Rica, El Nómada is a Spanish red wine from La Rioja

This expressive Spanish red wine is made from a blend of 90% Tempranillo, coming from 60-year-old, mostly south-oriented vineyards, complemented with 10% of old, over 70-year-old Graciano.

The 2015 vintage, incidentally, was an excellent one.

Once in the cellar, the meticulously selected grapes were vinified in 10,000-litre stainless steel tanks.

After that, El Nómada 2015 from  was transferred into French oak barrels. Then it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 15 months.

Drink this Crianza red wine from La Rioja until 2024. Decant 30 minutes before drinking.

Appearance

The red wine El Nómada has a bright cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.

 

Nose

While keeping a completely unpretentious character, this Tempranillo & Graciano from La Rioja has a lot to offer. Toasted and and forest-floor aromas that slowly give way to a cascade of nuanced and fresh fruit, spices, some balsamic and mineral remembrances and remembrances of cocoa and leather.

 

Palate

This red wine by Finca de la Rica is intense, seductive and well-defined. Crisp, rich and extremely inviting, with a balanced acidity and some delicious, uplifting tannins. Smooth texture and a long finish with a complex aftertaste of coffee, fruit, earth and underbrush.

 

Our personal opinion

A modern, precise Rioja, El Nómada 2015 needs to be decanted in order to enjoy it at its fullest.

Outstanding value. Elevage is excellent, with almost unnoticed oak. Good fruit and terroir.

You will hardly find a better wine for this price!! It is mineral and surprisingly deep. It will live for a long time. I always decant it 1 hour minimum and the wine really improves with it.
