Bodegas Proelio 2017 Rioja Vendimia Seleccionada
All the virtues of the Crianza are present also in the Reserva, with the added authority deriving from the 50 – 80 year-old vines which give rise to it from several plots grown above 600 meters. The aging in French barriques, of which a modest proportion are new, is discreet and effective.

Notes from the Producer: Cherry red color, intense aromas of black fruit, blackberries and blueberries, accompanied by deep aromas of fresh red fruit, together with creamy notes of coffee and a vanilla background. On the palate it is intense, round and silky with flavors of black and red fruits of the forest, vanilla and mineral notes of chalk, in the retronasal notes of black fruit and vanilla appear, with a very long finish, the texture of the calcareous soil is also appreciated that dries our mouths a bit in the half palate.
