The Marqués de Riscal Próximo DOCa is a full-bodied red wine that appears in the glass in a bright ruby red colour. The bouquet of this Spanish red wine cuvée convinces with the aromas of ripe forest berries and delicious pomegranate.
On the palate, the Próximo is well structured. Here, too, its fruitiness is expressed, which is elegantly combined with charming tannins.
Vinification for the Próximo DOCa The Rioja is one of the climatically and geologically most favoured
wine-growing areas: in the north, the peaks of the Cordillera Cantabrica protect the Ebro Valley from too much humidity and cold, in the south, over the massif of the Sierra de la Demanda from scorching heat and violent storms of the Spanish plateau.
Limestone soils and low temperature fluctuations make the vines grow excellently.
After selective harvesting, the grapes are gently pressed and fermented at a controlled temperature.
This cuvée consists of 93% Tempranillo, 5% Graciano and 2% Mazuelo grapes.
