The Mirto - Rioja DOCa by Bodegas Ramón Bilbao appears in the glass in an intense ruby red and unfolds an intense bouquet with the aromas of black and red fruits, especially cherries. These notes are accompanied by spicy notes such as pepper, roasted coffee, tobacco and dark chocolate. A hint of eucalyptus and mint are noticeable.
This balanced red wine from Spain, Rioja, delights on the palate with the ripe and sweet tannins, fresh acidity and the perfectly integrated alcohol. The long finish reflects the aromas of black fruits and wood.
