Red wine Reserva. 24 months in French, Allier oak barrels.

Characteristics of Mirto

Bodegas Ramón Bilbao can be found in the heart of D.O. Rioja, on the outskirts of Haro, one of the most privileged areas for growing grapes in the region.
The winery was founded in 1924 but it was in 1972 that they determined the guidelines for the production of Crianza wines. Currently its hallmarks are the development of high quality wines and innovation, keeping the utmost respect for tradition and history that precedes them.  
Ramón Bilbao Mirto 2008 was born from a selection of the best Tempranillo grapes grown on vines more than 70 years old. After the selection of the bunches, the fermentation takes place in small oak vats at a controlled temperature and it passes through French oak barrels where malolactic fermentation takes place without racking, only with battonage.
The wine is aged for 24 months in Allier French oak barrels after which it is bottled without being filtered.
It is a magnificent red wine with great personality and modern style.
Alcohol: 14.0%
Serve at 17ºC
We recommend decanting before consumption
Pairing
Stew, Cold meat, Mushrooms, Rice with meat, Grilled lamb, Roasts

Tasting notes Mirto

Sight Dark cherry red in colour with purplish meniscus. High and very cloudy layer that has an abundance of dense tears that fall slowly and in uniform. Nose It is complex and intense on the nose. Ripe red and black fruits combine perfectly with spicy aromas, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg and, thin but powerfully smoky and toasty notes. Background of floral notes, herbs and minerals.
Taste It has a powerful attack, with a taste that permeates the mouth with fruity, lactic, spicy and sweet sensations. Firm, ripe, defined tannins and an excellent acidity that refreshes and predisposes the second drink. Long and persistent finish. Elegant.
Sight Bright and very opaque violet colour. Nose Intense aromas in which the notes of very ripe red fruit stay in the background under a large set of notes provided during the ageing, which range from toasted and smoked touches to the noticeable hints of spices. An intense and fresh balsamic background is also noticed. Taste The wine goes through the palate showing multiple layers that show the efforts of integration of fruity notes provided by the Tempranillo and the subtleness of the ageing in oak. It persist in the palate and leave a fresh and juicy sensation that brings back the fruits noticed at the first taste.
Sight Bright and very opaque pomegranate colour with purple hues. Nose Its wide aroma palette drives us from the black berrties, across the smoked wood and toasted bread to the nutmeg. In the mouth its soft and elegante texture yet blunt and  powerful. Taste The wine develops in multiple layers tthat show the effort of integration between the Tempranillo fruit and the subtleness of the oak ageing. It remains in the palate leaving a fresh and juicy imprint that brings back the fruits from the first taste.
