precio prohibitivo comparado a la calidad Supongo que la calificación de Parker se le dio hace muchos años y no ha mantenido su calidad de sabor.

Viña Tondonia Reserva 2008

Det är den Garnacha som mina föräldrar gillar allra mest.
Attraktiv och intensiv färg. En något kladdig lukt. Det smarkade ganska rostat.
Jag tog det med torsk. Det gick bra..

Levamos sanduiches e gostamos deste Rioja. Bebi com os meus amigos em casa.
De cor vermelho não muito escuro. Este Viña Tondonia - Bodegas R. López de Heredia tem aroma a frutos do bosque. Sente-se um sabor a framboesa e morango.

Kirsebærrød. Sensuelle aromaer av kirsebær.DEN beste ettersmaken fra Rioja.
Jeg tror den beste kombinasjonen ville være med kjøtt.
Den var del av partiet fra selskapet.

4/5

This Spanish red wine is medium, ruby-coloured robe with a brick red rim. On the nose, it's deep and enticing. The first impression of this wine from Rioja is defined by some spicy notes of vanilla and clove, along with fine leather, smoke and withered herbs. As the wine opens, it shows notes of ripe red fruit, some remembrances of flowers and a dash of tobacco, cocoa and arabica coffee. On the palate, this wine is fresh, linear and smooth. Notes of red berries, Havana cigars and Oriental spices. Tense acidity, medium body and a long, dreamy persistance.
