Raposo Tempranillo

Rioja

Raposo is the Tempranillo from Villabuena, aged in large oak barrels. Crunchy brambles and red cherry fruit segue into a palate that’s savory, dense and serious with the potential to age.

""A wild horse" says Sandra Bravo of this field blend of Tempranillo and Graciano , which hails from two vineyards in Villabuena de Aiava, planted in 1920 and 1978 respectively. Riper than her high altitude reds, but not by much, this is spicy and meaty, with a hint of carbon dioxide, savoury tannins and an animal note. "
