Winery: CASA DE ILLANA
Type: Red Wine - 45% Bobal, 30% Tempranillo, 25% Syrah - 89 POINTS ROBERT PARKER VALUE WINES FROM SPAIN
Casa de Illana Tradicion is a flavorful and traditional wine with great structure and body. It is brilliant and clean with an intense cherry-garnet coloring. In the nose it boasts ripe blackberry, cherry, violets and licorice with mineral and fine wood notes. The first impression of this wine on the palate gives creamy earthy nuances and sweet tannins from the noble oak followed by a medium to long finish. This wine would pair excellently with pork, chicken and other grilled meats. Try it with a lamb-burger or even grilled salmon, it will surprise you!
All varieties are harvested & fermented separately at their right moments & blended just before maturing in oak barrels.
Very old Boabl vines as well as +20 year old Tempranillo vines.
