Ysios is a fantastic Rioja, a straightforward wine, extremely fresh, profound, very drinkable and very well constructed. Perhaps it seems a little closed at first but it's simply because it's discreet, quite genteel: it's not assertive, not opulent, it's subtle and refined. Leave it to breathe for half an hour beforehand and you'll see how seductive it is from the first mouthful and before you know it, the bottle's empty. Concentrated in flavour yet without too much extraction, it's accessible, a wine that's delicate, floral, very elegant and select; unblemished, practically perfect, we'd dare to say.

Ysios is made exclusively from Tempranillo grapes sourced from eight areas, with vineyards rooted in soils of differing composition and located in truly beautiful countryside, at the foot of the Sierra de Cantabria mountains. Grapes from selected vineyards, choice barrels too, and a very thorough production process enabling attainment of fantastic balance and a flawless ensemble.

On the nose, Ysios is elegant and pleasant, with a predominance of crunchy red fruits such as red currants and raspberries, with the odd floral note and mild menthol hint. On the palate it's meaty, showing plenty of vigour, and reveals its Rioja origins with an unmistakable undertone of tea; concentrated but always staying moist and juicy, it reveals some steely touches on the tongue, and proves an absolute pleasure to drink. A fine wine like those of the olden days, with the modernity of good Riojas nowadays. Always have a second bottle at the ready because the first won't last long! A most enjoyable drink.

Freschezza e corposita’

Sono queste le parole che meglio lo descrivono. Un’esplosione di frutta matura controbilanciata da una freschezza eccezionale. Sicuramente il tempo lo migliorerà

Eigenständiger alavesischer Rioja im modernen Stil

Bodegas Ysios wurde 2001 in der interessierten Weinwelt schlagartig bekannt durch sein avantgardistisches Kellergebäude, dessen Architektur auch nüchtern betrachtet äußerst spektakulär ist. Das ondulierte Dach des langgezogenen Gebäudes unweit von Laguardia windet sich silberfarben über das Grün der Weinfelder, damit auch wunderbar die Kantabrische Gebirgskette im Hintergrund reflektierend. Faszinierend und zweifellos ein architektonischer Hingucker. Und der Wein von Ysios? Der Ysios Reserva ist ein alavesischer Rioja im modernen Stil, aber leider nicht so avantgardistisch wie sein Umfeld es erwarten lässt. Der reinsortige Tempranillo aus Trauben von 5 umliegenden Dörfern fließt tiefdunkel ins Glas; feine Aromen von roten Früchten, Tee, Vanille und Gewürznelken in der Nase; im Mund wenig Frucht, etwas Pflaume und Bitterschokolade; es dominieren dichte Tannine, Mineralik, Röstnoten und eine kitzelnde Säure; der Abgang lebendig und versöhnend. Ein eigenständiger Wein, der aber die hohen Erwartungen, ausgelöst durch sein spektakuläres Umfeld und seinen hohen Preis, nicht ganz erfüllt.

Un poco acido

Hay que dejarlo respirar. Para mi gusto le falta un poco de balance. El precio es un poco caro para lo que se compra.
