Gloria de Ostatu 2010
The oldest vineyard. Made from grapes from our oldest and beloved vineyard, "Revillas". Low production but high quality plot that makes possible a fleshy and concentrated wine, with a great aging potential. The tempranillo at its best.
- Vintage: 2010
- Vintage Classification: excellent
- Bottled: Junly 2012
- Production: 4,102 bottles
Intense cherry color with garnet reflections.
Highlights aromas of fruits such as cherries, claudia plums and black fruit in seasoning, accompanied by sweets and fine toast. Subtle minerality, a reflection of its homeland.
In the mouth it provides very good concentration of fruit and acidity. Oily and fresh, but with warm essence. Balsamic notes of licorice. Franco in its length with influence of present oak, although always leaving prominence to the fruit.
