Contino Garnacha 2015

Rioja
  • 75cl bottle

Intense aromas of red mature fruits such as cherry and redcurrant, menthol, minerality and balsamic notes. On the palate is a dense texture of sweet and unctuous soft tannins, red fruit and integrated oak.

Vineyards

Manual harvest from Pajera, Central and Lentisco plots with vines ranging from 30 to 70 years old.
