2016 Burgo Viejo Rioja Graciano

Producer: Bodegas Burgo Viejo
Country/Region: Spain - Rioja - Rioja

This was a new wine for KPF for the 2014 vintage. The grapes here are coming from a 2-hectare single vineyard, grown organically, with a distinctive stony soil (it is an old quarry).

Looking for the highest harmony with the environment, Burgo Viejo produced this red cherry colored wine with violet shades. Structured and fruity, it offers aromas of blackberry and subtle spice. Full-bodied, fresh and well-balanced with smooth and velvety tannins.
