4 /5

This red Bosconia from Tondonia comes in one of the most prestigious vineyards in La Rioja. It is a very balanced wine with an unbelievably long storage potential Made from Tempranillo (80%), Grenache (15%) and the rest of Graciano and Mazuelo and aged in oak barrels for five years. This Bosconia is perfectly balanced with a deep ruby red color with shades of orange . The nose is persistent , powerful and with a lot of ripe fruit , it is dominated by the Tempranillo grape. The taste is round , smooth, fresh, full- bodied and a great long-lasting finish.

Este vino ha evolucionado perfectamente. Su nariz es persistente, mostrando mucha fruta, principalmente dominado por el Tempranillo, y su desarrollo en boca es redondo, con cuerpo, suave, fino y persistente. El vino ha permanecido en barrica durante 5 años.

4/5

A seductive wine with lifted aromas that entice the palate of macerated red berries and a touch of cured meats. The wine leaves a scent in the glass that is really quite magical, drawing you into a succulent palate which is broader and richer than its predecessor.

4/5

I'll try again at the upcoming wine tasting.
Its intense colour attracted me. Toasted and smoky aromas. Licorice flavour.
I propose to pair this Rioja with sausages from the same region.
