Rioja (Laserna)

Reserva 2013

Size

In a red fruit register, with floral lift and purply-mineral crushed spices, the open savoury nose has earthen depths of river silt and sweet old clay pipes. The palate has beautiful textural maturity, working in a rich-but-dry vein. The wonderfully adapted amalgam of fruit-tannin-oak-air-acid affects a hugely pleasing dusty-nutty-spicy freshness in a lingering finish of great gentleness.
