The red wine Viña Bosconia reserva has an intense, ruby red colour with tile coloured edges.
|Nose||Jubilant ripe fruit, accompanied by floral notes, lavender and withered leaves. After a while, this reserve red wine from the López de Heredia winery suggests many spicy aromas (vanilla, cinnamon clove) alongside leather, coffee, and tobacco over a deep balsamic background.|
Flavorful and elegant, this classic Rioja blend from Viña Tondonia has a nimble body and a classy, silky touch. The entry is mouth-filling. Overall, the palate is well-balanced and fresh, with nicely polished tannins. The final is deep and persistent.
