Red Wine Viña Bosconia Reserva 2011
Availability: In stock
This classic Spanish red wine from La Rioja is produced by the R. López de Heredia- Viña Tondonia winery. The 2011 vintage was considered "Excellent" by the Rioja Regulatory Board.
As usual, Viña Bosconia Reserva is made basically from Tempranillo and Grenache, complemented with a small percentage of Graciano and Mazuela, all coming from estate vineyards.
After a meticulous harvest, the wine was traditionally vinified and aged for 5 years in barrels with two manual rackings.
Then Viña Bosconia Reserva 2011 was clarified with fresh egg whites, bottled, and aged in the cellar for a further 5 years before its release.
We suggest that you gently decant this Reserva red wine a minimum of 30 minutes before drinking.
Like all López de Heredia wines, this red wine from La Rioja has a remarkable ageing potential.
The red wine Viña Bosconia reserva is medium ruby with some tile-coloured edges.
Exquisite ripe red fruit, accompanied by floral notes, lavender and withered leaves. After a while, this blend of Tempranillo, Grenache, Graciano and Mazuela suggests many spicy aromas (vanilla, cinnamon clove) alongside leather, coffee, and tobacco over a deep balsamic background.
This wine from bodega R. López de Heredia - Viña Tondonia is, as usual, the most structured of the company product range. Flavours of wild berries, with some earthy suggestions, well-integrated notes of oak and balsam and some sinewy tannins. Acidity keeps everything in its place, and the finish is very long.
