Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Anciano No. 3 Tempranillotext

Anciano No. 3 Tempranillo NV

Rioja, SpainYou can’t expect much for $12.99 when more than half of that is tax and markup, but such is wine life in BC. In the end, this is a well made, spicy cherry, berry red with a kiss of vanilla and a smooth slippery texture that finishes with a dusting of dried herbs. A mid-week meaty pasta wine. Criadores de Rioja belongs to a family with one of the longest traditions in Rioja winemaking, near Logroño, in the heart of Rioja Alta. Mature vines grown at high altitudes (300-500m) on gravel and sand produce low-cost quality fruit that post fermentation is aged six months in American oak barrels.Tasted: 01 November 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
