2016 Bodegas Marques de Teran Seleccion Especial Rioja

About the Wine

Marques de Teran gracefully blends the history of a royal family with modern winemaking and a vision to the future. The architecture of the stunning winery is the most avant-garde in La Rioja and one of the most advanced in the world. 80% of the surface of the winery is built into a hill. The winery uses gravity flow to the receive and transport the grapes and wine in the lightest way possible. The commitment to quality and technology is of the highest magnitude. At the same time, the wine is bottled unfiltered, so expect some sediment. The winery insisted on capturing the essence of the fruit in the bottle, so the wine is fresh as possible. You can taste the difference in this wine.

Reviews

Dark-berry aromas with a light and bright floral edge. There’s attractive fragrance on offer here. The palate has a smooth array of rich blueberries and blackberries and spicy oak to close. Great depth and purity. Pure tempranillo. Drink or hold. ~93JS
