Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
Made for Tesco exclusively by Baron de Ley, this is 100%
Tempranillo and aged in American oak barrels.
It is a great combination, producing a rich, powerful wine with raspberry and vanilla flavours, together with a touch of spice.
Lovely with lamb chops.
To enjoy this wine at its best, drink within 1 year of purchase.

Of the 2007 vintage, Anthony Rose said: "Take advantage of Tesco's special offer on this rioja from Baron de Ley, a succulently cherryish pure tempranillo with vanilla and coconut undertones and matured in American oak."
Victoria Moore - The Daily Telegraph 14/07/2012
Of the 2007 vintage, Victoria Moore said: "Made for Tesco by Baron de Ley, whose style of Rioja I would describe as modern and patrician. It's made entirely from Tempranillo and aged in American oak which gives it a lick of vanilla. Good value when it's on promo and if you're barbecuing under an umbrella this summer, you might want to open some to keep you cosy."
David Williams - The Observer Magazine 23/09/2012
Of the 2007 vintage, David Williams said: "Tesco are having one of their periodic 25% off deals when you buy six bottles this week, and here's one of my favourite wines in the range. It's a sumptuous but soft red, made for the supermarket by Baron de Ley, that is just starting to take on some savoury character underneath the juicy but rich cherry and raspberry fruit, all with a dusting of coconut oak in traditional Rioja style."
Matthew Jukes - Weekend (Daily Mail) 31/03/2012
Of the 2007 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: "I am an enormous fan of this producer, and the sultry cherry and vanilla notes in this wine are hypnotic with slow roasted pork."
Olly Smith - Live Magazine, Mail on Sunday 10/02/2013
Of the 2007 vintage, Olly Smith said: "I could bathe in this wine, such is its gentle warming glory. Excellent earthy richness, boldly warming with intensity, spice and joy."
Barón de Ley is a winery founded in 1985 by a small group of Rioja wine professionals and who conceive and start a project of innovative and unique characteristics in this prestigious DOCa. The original Baron de Ley project was based on the idea of developing a purely “vineyard driven” winery, oriented to the production of high quality wines from own vineyards. The other main guideline behind the project was to develop and implement a new style of “modern” Rioja wines
The winery is 320 ha located in Rioja Baja on Alluvial soils, rich in clays and limestone. Clear Mediterranean influence, which implies more insolation and less rains than in the western Rioja areas, which creates optimal conditions for the obtention of wines with more colour, concentration and poliphenolic maturation.
