Vina Valoria Reserva 2014
A great Rioja Reserva below the £15 mark. Aged for 30 months in American oak barrels before resting quietly in bottle for another 6 months. Intense red ruby colour with brick rim. On the nose, it displays aromas of fruit liqueur, spice and coffee. The palate is flavourful with balsamic and spicy character, with the smoothness typical of a classic Rioja Crianza and with a long and lively finish.
Open a whole hour before consumption to fully appreciate.
