Solar Viejo Cosecha
Intense ruby red w ith notable violet flashes. On the nose there is an explosion of ripe red fruits, predominantly raspberry and straw berry, typical of young red Rioja Alavesa. These are follow ed by rather more subdued red fruit aromas and a touch of milky fruit yogurt. On the palate there is a medium acidity and a w onderful liveliness, w ith just a hint of prickle, typical of such a young w ine. Soft supple tannins make this a satisfying easy to drink w ine.
The finish is medium in length, and show s good, clean vivacious fruit.
Rice dishes, pasta, tapas and other light aperitifs, mild cheeses, cooked meats.
Serving perhaps lightly cooled, between 13 and 17ºC.
