Vinedos Sierra Cantabria, Rioja Amancio, Spain, 2014

£119.95

“Complicity with Mother Earth” is this wineries ethos....and we like the sound of that. Around since 1870 and now on their 5th generation, here we have 40+ year old Tempranillo vines from a single vineyard. Unbelievable concentration of aromas and flavours which packs an almighty palate punch. Mix that kind of concentration with twenty-four months in oak and we find a cracker of a wine which delivers on all fronts.
