As one brings it closer to the nose, a tapestry of aromas unfolds, revealing ripe fruits such as plums and blackberries, interwoven with spicy flashes of cinnamon and black pepper, complemented by a sweet hint of licorice.

The journey concludes with a long and lingering finish, where one can discern delicate balsamic nuances, rounding out a concentrated and sophisticated profile.

2017 Marqués de Riscal XR is a red wine of elegant shyness, which little by little, as it breathes, reveals its most intimate secrets. Aromatic hints of smoky and spicy notes harmoniously accompany its exquisitely fruity background (blueberry, blackcurrant), which is rounded off with the freshness provided by its balsamic nuances. It offers a lively tension on the palate, but with ripe tannins and a creaminess that fills the mouth. A fleshy, well-structured red wine that offers power and pleasure in equal parts.
