Vina Ijalba Graciano DOCa 2016 Organic

15.95 incl. btw

First 100% Graciano ever to be produced in Rioja (first botteling in 1994 – Rioja Alta – single vineyard – 10 months ageing in French oak from Allier)

Graciano is a very concentrated small grape. Yields are low and it has an intense color, acidity and beautiful aromas. “This grape gives grace to the wines of Rioja”.

Beautiful and expressive nose with red and black fruits, violets, cloves, toast, fresh herbs and black olives . Full bodied, soft textured with juicy and fresh fruit, same flavours on the palate. Very fine, upright tannins giving a dusty texture, refined and long. Should soften to release even more of Graciano’s lovely fragrance. Fantastic red!
