R. Lopez de Heredia Vina Bosconia Tinto Reserva 2007 750ml
The 2007 Vina Bosconia Reserva is a blend of 80% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacho and the remaining 5% Mazuelo and Graciano aged for five years in used barrels, racked twice per year and fined with egg whites before being bottled unfiltered. Dark ruby-colored, with notes of beef blood, iron, antique shop, incense, blood orange and a touch of volatile acidity, the palate is very fresh, with good concentration, clear flavors and enough grip and fruit to age gracefully. A perfumed and feminine great Rioja.
The Bosconia vineyard wines are the only ones from Lopez de Heredia bottled in Burgundy bottles.
