Tasting Notes

A more approachable take on Rioja Alta’s super-traditional style. A blend of Tempranillo and Graciano, the Graciano is the key for their Gran Reservas: it provides an aromatic intensity and acidity to carry the structure and power of the Tempranillo. Matured in older American oak for three years, racked by hand and by candlelight, followed by three years in bottle. Armit Wines

Reviews & Scores

Platinum Medal, 97 Points – Decanter World Wine Awards 2019

Plenty of dark fruits on the nose, but with that vanilla sheen from ageing in small oak. The attack is supple and rounded, but there's good underlying acidity. It's not too big or overbearing but has a silky, refined texture. Elegant and long. A beautifully made wine.
