Passion for Spanish wine



Finca La Emperatriz Terruño 2011 Tinto

Hermanos Hernáiz, Rioja

Grapes are sourced from plot number 10 out of 22 parcels identified in the estate. All vines are 100% trellised Tempranillo planted in 1997. Deep ruby colour. Somewhat closed on the nose with dark aromas of black fruit, shoe polish and pencil lead aromas. This is an intense red wine with ripe dark fruit notes made in a modern style and with higher extraction than in the classical range of Crianza and Reserva. It will benefit from some cellaring. 16.5 points
