4/5

Smells a lot of oak. It would have been better if it had been cooler than it was. Our fault.
Do not forget decanting.

4/5

I had it because it was given to me as a present.
Intense ruby colour. You can notice that the Viña Tondonia Reserva 375ml smells of red fruits. The flavours of Viña Tondonia Reserva 375ml were quite well compensated.

It has aromas that reminded me of white roses. Flavours are well balanced.
You have to aerate it before.
