Brillant ruby red colour, high layer. Aromas of walnuts and hazelnuts.A surprisingly fresh wine.
I recommend to pair it with "Pinchos" or "Tapas".
I took the El Grifo Ariana with my couple in a romantic plan.

You will not find this El Grifo Ariana in any supermarket.
Has a very cheerful colour. First of all, you'll perceive a raspberry flavour. A very dense red.
