Baron de Ley Tempranillo 750ml
Baron de Ley is Carolina Wine Brands’ spanish partner in the historic region of Rioja. Based in a XVI century monastery, Baron de Ley is the first player in the region to work with own vineyards in major scale. The winery is specialized in award winning premium red wines with excellent value for money.
100 % Tempranillo, manually harvested and coming from our own vineyards in Finca Los Almendros, Rioja Baja. The wine is aged for 6 months in American oak and another 6 months in bottle before release.
This wine is an excellent example of the emerging “Rioja Mediterranea”. The climate in eastern Rioja, with its drier character and abundant sun exposure, implies better maturation which results in more “mediterranean” wines, delivering more power and alcoholic degree and good volume in the mouth with soft and round tannins. To put it into a few words, a new Rioja taste for the modern consumer. With red ruby color of good intensity, it surprises in the nose for its ripe fruit with fine and discreet traces from its noble ageing. Very good presence and structure in the mouth, with good round tannins and long fruity finish.
