Azabache Graciano Rioja Reserva 2010
This rare and excellent Rioja is made from a single variety ‘Graciano’, considered to be the quality grape of traditional Rioja. Made in the traditional style, having been aged for 2 years in oak followed by a further 3 in bottle before release, the wine exhibits intense blackcurrant, black cherry, plum with cinnamon and vanilla flavours. Well structured with supple, sweet tannins and a long complex finish.
