Dark as night with deep purple-red hues, this Graciano is tremendous. Graciano is thought to be the oldest variety commercially grown in Spain today. Its origins predate the arrival of the Romans, when Iberian tribes pressed and fermented their lovely Graciano juice in the old terraced hillside vineyards of the Rioja Alavesa. Complex aromas of dark chocolate, carob, ripe figs and blueberry pie entice the nose with a delicate ending of violet notes. It has soft silky smooth tannins and is full bodied in the mouth with a powerful long finish.
