Baron de Ley Tempranillo 2017
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 maturations which result 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 suprises 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.
This polished red offers black cherry, licorice, forest floor and smoky flavors, focused and crisp. Light, firm tannins and bright acidity give this structure and energy. Drink now through 2027. 1,000 cases made, 100 cases imported.
