This red wine from Rioja has a deep cherry red hue with a cherry edge, with a medium-high layer. Proelio Reserva red wine forms marked, visibly colored tears.
On the nose it has an intense and elegant aromatic expression as well as fresh. In this Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano wine we have ripe black fruit very present, between sensations of fresh red fruit intermixed with numerous creamy notes of coffee, pepper and chocolate. It leaves us with an elegant and friendly background of spices, withered leaves and mineral memories.
In the mouth it is very balanced, round, and silky, fruity and fresh in the palate, with delicate spicy sensations. Tasty notes of the woods more present than in the olfactory phase. It has very well integrated tannins, which combine very well with its fresh acidity. With a long and persistent finish, this Proelio wine from Bodegas Palacios Vinos de Finca-Proelio is structured and balanced, leaving notes of vanilla and licorice through retro nasal.
