Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
From the slightly cooler Rioja Alta region in Spain, this is a beautifully crafted mature wine made soley from the Tempranillo grape by Baron de Ley.
With sweet dark cherry fruit and a seductively soft oaky character, this is marvellously mellow.
Sip fireside, or enjoy with slow roasted red meats.
This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 4 years
