A cherry red colour, suggestive of a vibrant Tempranillo wine. On the nose, it's rich aromas have a pronounced intensity with an initial scent of ripe red fruit followed by gentle sweet notes of vanilla and spices. On the palate it is perfumed, soft and fresh with a long finish that leaves memories of red fruit, vanilla and cocoa.

Campo Viejo was created 55 years ago by two local winemakers, Beristain and Ortigüela, with a dream - to create a top quality wine that is perfect for enjoying with friends. Campo Viejo has a long and proud history that takes it back to the Roman Empire. However, it has been over the past half century when the name has become synonymous with Rioja wines. From their first vintage - brewed in the former Ortigüela winery in 1959, to the creation of the famous ‘Rioja Bottle' in '61 and the unveiling of their state-of-the-art sustainable winery in 2001, they have been at the forefront of Rioja winemaking.
Campo Viejo has some 300 hectares of own vineyards. The winery also sources additional grapes from local winegrowers. Most of their vineyard consist of old vines, over 25 years old, and mainly of the Tempranillo variety. The vines are arranged in plots, cultivated in line with previously-determined criteria so that each grape is designed for a particular type of wine.
This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 2 years
