Smooth as velvet, this Tempranillo grape wine from the Rioja region in N.E. Spain is aged in oak casks for 18 months.

A fine soft Rioja with traditional vanilla overtones from the American oak in which it has been aged.

One of the finest quality Bodegas in the Rioja region. This smooth, Tempranillo grape wine has undergone 16 months ageing in American oak casks giving it the familiar vanilla flavour.

Producer Information

Bodegas Santalba: Santiago Ijalba and his son Roberto own and run this Bodega in the village of Gimileo 4 kilometers from Haro, the wine capital of the Rioja region. They follow the usual Rioja practice of using their own grapes supplemented by those of several contract growers. Tempranillo is the dominant grape but they also use small quantities of other Rioja red grapes, Garnacha, Graziano, and Mazuelo. This is a modern bodega but making both traditional and modern wines at the very pinnacle of Rioja wines.
