Review

Made from grapes grown in the cooler parts of the Imas vineyard estate at Mendavia (Rioja Baja).

The wine is an attractive ruby-red colour, of medium density, and has brick-red hues. The nose reveals an aroma of toast, ripe fruits, traces of infusions, spices and tobacco, which proves extremely intense. The palate is rounded and harmonious, showing silky tannins; it is fresh, lively and persistent.

Matured for 24 months in American and French oak barrels (50-50%) and subsequently in bottle for 5 years.

Excelente

Rioja tipico con su tabaco, madera, ciruela. Encorpado. se abre y evoluciona muy bien. Todavia si pode guardar. Forte e potente.

Brilliant rich Rioja, takes a bit of time to breathe and come into its own richness. Full bodied and more-ish

Barón de Ley

The Barón de Ley winery is located in an old monastery in Mendavia (Navarre), within the DOCa Rioja appellation.
