This remarkable, single estate Spanish red wine is made from a classic Rioja blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano grapes, coming from over 70-year-old grapevines planted in rocky-limestone soils. The plot is located at an altitude of 470 metres above sea level in the very heart of La Rioja.
Meticulously vinified and carefully selected, the grapes were traditionally vinified and then aged in new French oak barrels for 16 months,
An age-worthy wine, Paco García Beautiful Things 2015 will drink beautifully over the next 10 years.
The red wine Paco García Beautiful Things has a very bright, intense cherry colour with a garnet rim and some violet tinges.
This red wine by Tempranillo and Graciano is intense and complex, with deep aromas of ripe black fruit, nuanced by hints of vanilla, nutmeg, liquorice and coffee over an enticing mineral and earthy background. Indeed, there are many Beautiful Things in this wine.
Winking at the New-World style, this modern Rioja by Bodegas Paco García exhibits a meaty body and a bold character. Extremely rich and juicy, with ripe tannins and a velvety passage through the palate. Very good acidity and long finish with remembrances of cedar, caramel, almonds, coffee and spices.
