Bodega Classica Rioja Hacienda López de Haro
Gran Reserva 2009
Located on a hill in the historic village of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, Bodega Classica’s (home of the Hacienda López de Haro wines) building rises above a sea of vineyards, flanked by the river Ebro and the Sierra de Toloño. The winery specializes in the production of great aged reds aimed at the quality wine consumer. Bodega Classica bases its philosophy on the taste for simplicity, elegance and experience.
A blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano. Complex on the nose with coffee, vanilla, roast and balsamic nuances integrated into an intense bottom note of ripe fruit. It is elegant and round on the palate. It is well balanced with a velvety attack followed by a pleasant acidity and a silky and full-bodied aftertaste resulting from its noble and ripe tannin. Its long aftertaste has spicy and balsamic hints, resulting from its long and peaceful ageing, as well as confit fruit nuances that uncover its personality.
