Ramon Bilbao Rioja Vinedos De Altura 2016 - fiche technique
50% Tempranillo, 50% Garnacha.
The Vinedos de Altura has a medium intensity ruby red colour and has a clean, bright appearance. On the nose there are aromas of aromatic herbs, red fruits and hints of balsamic combined with spicy notes and white pepper. The palate is fresh and pleasant. It has good acidity with firm but smooth tannin and has the aura of a wine that is in harmony as well as being elegant. It is certainly a wine that will continue to evolve but is ready to drink now.
