This wine is made to show off what the Syrah grape can do in Navarra, and it does very well. To add further complexity, the wine is then aged in oak barrels which really gives it a rich, aromatic, slightly spicy style.
This is one of a range of innovative single grape variety wines from Príncipe de Vian in Navarra. Graciano makes deeply coloured aromatic reds with a hint of mineral and is often used to add complexity to reservas. It is rarely encountered by itself but this example is fermented in stainless steel tanks before oak ageing which is kept brief so as not to...
This wine is a "semi crianza", meaning it is aged, but for less time than a crianza, so it has some of the complexities of an aged wine while retaining lots of youthful fruity characteristics, making it extremely versatile.
Rioja Vega produces a large range of fine quality wines in their state of the art winery in eastern Rioja. This wine has aged during 6 months in oak casks leaving the lovely Tempranillo fruit to shine through without losing complexity. Silky, pleasant and enveloping on the palate
A cappela Roble has its origin in the freshest vineyards located nearer to the Duero River. The soil is sand with a little content of gravel. This gives a freshness that combined with the time in oak, allows us to elaborate a wine with a great personality and nice fruity hints.
This Garnacha monovarietal, with only 4 months in the barrel, offers an intense nose of red cherries. On the palate there is lots of perfectly ripe Garnacha fruit which is balanced by soft oak notes giving a pretty complex wine for the money.
Nero D’Avola is the most Sicilian of grapes, originating in Syracuse, and gives a wine with body and extract and aromas of black fruits with a trace of spice. The Coraldo vineyards are in the west of the island on clay soils and grown on espaliers.
This wine belongs to the Particular collection from Bodegas San Valero in Carinena, a limited production that pays tribute to the winegrowers’ ancestral traditions. It is made with the star of our vineyards, the Garnacha, from old vines planted in a unique terroir characterized by its stony soil and the extreme climatological conditions. As a result,...
From the Aragonese town of Carinena, which gave its name to the grape (also known as Mazuelo). The soils are calcareous and stony and the vines ripen under a Mediterranean sun. In the bodega, pre and post fermentation maceration and malo-lactic are carried out in stainless steel tanks before the wine goes to barrel for ageing.
Maximum extraction of the Tempranillo grapes from vineyards located near the Duero River. This gives a very characteristic freshness and combined with its 5 months barrel aging results in a wine with great personality and marked fruity undertones. Flavorful and fruity with round tannins.
From among the highest vineyards of Ribera del Duero at an altitude of some 900 metres. The vines have to work hard and this provides good concentrated fruit, especially as the vines are over 60 years old, which gives great quality but low yields. The grapes are fermented separately in stainless steel before being blended together and ageing in barrels.
This modern “château style” bodega surrounded by its vineyards lies at about 800 metres altitude and everything is done with an eye on the environment. The grapes are carefully sorted and the must ferments in temperature controlled French oak vats. The wine is racked off the skins into other vats for malo-lactic before being blended and aged in 225 litre...
This family owned bodega dates from the 1980s, at about the same time as Ribera del Duero received its DO. They own 50 hectares of their own vineyards in calcareous soils at high altitude, and grapes are always picked manually and thoroughly sorted before fermentation. This takes place in stainless steel tanks before the wine is aged in oak.
This is both an interesting and excellent value wine. It is made by the “apassimento” process involving the addition of partially dried grapes to the fermentation giving extra body, texture and complexity.
This wine proves the quality they are producing in Sicily these days. The vines are cultivated on clay soils at an altitude of between 300-600 metres, and the wine is fermented in small steel tanks and the Pinot Noir is aged in wood before blending.
A pure & special Garnacha thanks to the characteristic minerality that gives the terroir where it grows.
An expressive round taste that leaves apleasant and exciting aftertaste. Tempranillo alive and elegant.
Brilliant, full bodied wine, almost royal-purple in colour. Intense on the nose with fine aromas of fruit, notes of toasted spices and hints of rosemary with woodland notes. On the palate: beautifully assembled, smooth and fruity with agreeably restrained tannins, giving a long finish to a well balanced wine.
Very aromatic, intense bouquet and surprising in the mouth. A wine in balance with the environment which optimizes the qualities of a variety: the Garnacha grape.
A fresh wine, with lots of fruit, gently textured and tasty. The Tempranillo is complemented by a small percentage of the Merlot variety bringing to the wine freshness, liveliness and complexity
Another classic from Sicily, made with Sicilian grape varieties from old vines but using a winemaking technique from northern Italy: Apassimento, or drying the grapes, giving more body and complexity. In this case, only the Nero D’Avola is dried giving great character but not excessive weight.
Hailing from Sicily this is a blend of Sicilian and French grape varieties which gives a slightly softer feel yet offers all the ripeness one expects. The grapes grow on clay soils in western Sicily, inland from Marsala and the wines are made in a super modern winery.
Grenache is perfectly matched to dry and continental conditions of the high valleys. This wine is a tribute to a grape that has always been part of La Rioja vineyards. Its lush fruit and late maturing, gives the wine aromas of red fruit and silky tannins.
A wine attractive visually and aromatic (red fruit) and with a mouthful very sweet.
Made from Garnacha, Syrah and Merlot grapes, grown on stony soils of limestone nature. The harvest is done between September and October in boxes manually. Fermentation and maceration are carried out in stainless steel tanks. It was bottled after a aging of 6 months in barrels of French (80%) and American oak(20%).
This blend of Tempranillo and Syrah is a dark, clean and bright wine with lots of fruit aromas and even those of the Serrania de Ronda. The Bodega Doña Felisa, near Ronda (Malaga), is a family business whose success has consisted in creating a series of wines with charm and character at a reasonable price. The cellar, well equipped and well integrated, is...
This wine comes from the Reverdy family’s 15 hectares of vineyard in the Loire vineyards of central France. Sancerre is made on very calcareous stony soils on the other side of the river from Pouilly, which were once under the sea. All wines are domaine bottled.
