Tasting Notes Cerrado del Castillo
Red wine with a deep cherry red color, with intense and elegant aromas of ripe red fruits and many spicy notes. In the mouth it came long with a large number of flavors, with a long journey and a deep and friendly finish. It presents some sensory characters that reflect very well its microclimate within the northernmost area of La Rioja and genuine of its origin.
