Rioja Reserva Especial, Bodegas Bagordi DO
Another first for us - an organic Reserva Especial originating from Bagordi's oldest (and best) vineyards. This unique Rioja blending of Graciano and Merlot has yielded a very special wine which has been aged in French oak for 15 months. Two years further ageing in bottle has mellowed the wine still further. The nose is rich and complex with red forest berries, cedar and spices. In the mouth fruit and oak are in harmony and the finish is long and satisfying. Recommended with blue and smoked cheeses, spicy dishes and noodles.
Grape varieties: Graciano / Merlot
