2011 Finca Allende Rioja Tempranillo
Finca Allende, the estate created by the exuberant Miguel Ángel de Gregorio, is located in the hill town of Briones in the Rioja Alta. “Allende” can be roughly translated as “further”, reflecting the property’s philosophy to go further and further towards creating the perfect Rioja.
This is intense ruby with purple edges. Fresh, vibrant blackberry, cranberry and wild forest fruits dominate before the subtle cedar and tobacco is revealed. The oak is perfectly integrated. It’s very lively on the palate with excellent depth and an elegant structure.

"Aged in new French oak barrels) Vivid ruby-red. An expansive bouquet evokes fresh red and blue fruits, cherry compote, vanilla and tobacco. A sexy floral nuance emerges slowly. Smooth and seamless on the palate, offering sweet black raspberry, cherry-vanilla and cola flavors that are given spine and lift by a core of juicy acidity. Rich yet lively in style, displaying impressive finishing delineation, discreet tannins and lingering spiciness. Drink: 2019-2028."
