MARQUES DE MURRIETA CASTILLO YGAY RIOJA GRAN RESERVA ESPECIAL 1980 MAGNUM (1.5L)

Wine Region: Rioja, Spain

Grapes: Tempranillo, Mazuelo

Tasting Notes

Bright amber red in colour, with a delicate nose of rich fruit balanced by firm, subtle oak. The palate begins with voluptuous warmth, becoming more and more complex in the glass, with hints of spice, leather and exotic fruit balanced by subtle American oak. The finish is long and lingering, with good acidity and striking youth.

About the Winery

Marques de Murrieta´s foundation is linked to the origins of the Rioja wines since Luciano Murrieta produced in 1852 the first Rioja wine and was also the first one to export his wines. Luciano, appointed Marquis by the King Amadeo of Savoy thanks to his work in Rioja, travelled to Bordeaux to learn the winemaking techniques that he introduced later in Spain. He established the concept of a chateau in the Ygay Estate where he built the emblematic Ygay Castle.
