Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
Deep black-cherry colour, almost opaque.
Very elegant, complex nose, with aromas of black fruit and lots of spice.
It is smooth and round in the mouth, with tannins whch are firm, yet silky and very sweet and which envelop the whole palate.
The finish is long, lingering, fresh and balanced with a hint of fine elegant tannins.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 5 years
Marqués de Riscal is one of the oldest Rioja wineries. Founded in Elciego (Álava) in 1858 by Guillermo Hurtado de Amézaga, from the outset it has been a point of reference in the winemaking business at both national and international level.
Francisco Hurtado de Amézaga
The grapes used to make Marqués de Riscal wines are grown in 1,500 ha. spread between Elciego and neighbouring villages such as Leza, Laguardia or Villabuena.The poor soils, from the different terraces over the river Ebro, are of the chalky clay kind. This sub zone of the Rioja Alavesa has traditionally been best known for producing wines with good ageing potential, thanks to the high acidity and good tannin structure of the musts obtained.
