Torre de Ono is part of the La Rioja Alta stable, one of my absolute favourite old world wineries!
La Rioja Alta expanded into Rioja Alavesa, founding the Torre de Oña estate. Here, with old bush-trained Tempranillo, they produce a more modern style of Rioja where the terroir lends itself to a fuller, riper style of wine that is complemented by the use of French oak and shorter maturation.
I adore this style of Rioja, it’s the perfect merge of traditional and modern Rioja Reserva styles.
Luscious red berry fruit, perfectly balanced with a subtle integration of French oak, spice and a sweet and savoury finish!
The perfect match with roasted red meats/ root vegetables or just by itself.
James Suckling –
”Aromas of ripe dark fruit, walnuts, currant bush and bark. Medium to full-bodied with creamy tannins and bright acidity. Polished and silky with mellow fruit character and a fresh, floral touch to it. Firm finish with notes of chocolate. Drink or hold.”
