2018 Contino Graciano
50 years ago Vinedos del Contino was established on the bank of the Ebro and became the first single estate winery in Rioja. Today it has 62 ha of vineyards and prides itself on combining tradition with innovation with a modern state of the art winery and ancient 16th century cave cellars.
Their Graciano is a highly prized Spanish wine. The nose is fruity with spicy aromas balanced by hints of oak. The palate is refreshing with a powerful mouthfeel, high acidity and long and velvety tannins
The wine spends 15 months ageing in primarily French with some Hungarian oak barrels before being bottle aged for a year.
