Passion for Spanish wine



Contino Graciano 2009 Tinto

Viñedos del Contino , Rioja

Deep purple colour. Lively and rather exotic nose with hot stones, roastbeef, violet and blackberry aromas. Vibrant and youthful on the palate. What fascinates me about this wine is the way it manages to combine fresh and warm nuances: red liitle fruits and tangy citrus acidity with hot stones. Surely not a wine for everyone's palate but I'm pretty sure that many wine lovers would feel passionate about it. 17.0 points
