ALTOS DEL MARQUÉS RESERVA MAGNUM 2008

RIOJA
1.5 l.
Bodegas Altos del Marqués
RED
100% TEMPRANILLO

Tasting Notes

Deep red with ruby iridiscences in colour, very intense, clean and brilliant.

Of great aromatic complexity, it includes ripe black fruit, red fruit jam, liquorice and raspberry aromas with chocolate, vanilla and balsamic hints from the toast of the cask.

Full, round, well constituted on the palate, the ripe round tannins in perfect balance with its fruit-bearing character, thus reinforcing a lingering finish and persistent aromatic, balsamic, spicy aftertaste.
