2018 Palacio del Burgo Tinto
There’s no denying that Rioja is Spain’s star region. Known for its rich Tempranillo wines, the historic region has been making wine for more than 2000 years. Although red wines from Rioja are prized, Spanish wines still offer great bang for your buck!
The 2018 Palacio del Burgo Rioja is a powerful Tempranillo that offers the elegance we expect from Spain. This selection is produced by Bodegas Burgo Viejo – a group of winemaking families focusing on their exquisite winemaking process. The diversity of soils and microclimates from the different vineyards shines in this complex wine.
This delicious Rioja opens with fruity notes of blackberry and strawberry and hints of licorice. Vanilla, mocha, and plum on the palate. Plush tannins and mouth-watering acidity complement the long, flavorful finish.
“A fruity and plummy wine with just a hint of strawberry jam. Full body. Velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Dense and layered.” – 90 points, James Suckling
