Product Information

Sierra Cantabria Rioja Amancio 06

$268.90 750 MLS
Sierra Cantabria ‘Amancio’ Rioja 2006 (19.5+/20), at 14.5% alc, 100% Tempranillo from the 15 ha ‘Amacio’site from 35 y.o. vines, the wine spending 24 months in all new French oak using a “200% new oak aging regime”. Very dark, black hued purple-red in colour, this had a very fine and tightly bound nose with minerals, dark florals, black fruits and spices. The palate was also very fine and tightly bound, yet there was great concentration. This had finesse and power, the palate showing exotic spices and beautiful aromatic fruit character. Underneath it was plenty of extract, freshness from excellent acidity, and great length. 15-20 years with ease.  RC Aug 10
