Lopez Cristobal Roble

75 cl

A great value for money, this Ribera Del Duero is made from Tinta del Pais (Tempranillo), with a touch of Merlot. It has lovely notes of red cherries, strawberries and red currant on the nose, with hints of spice. Finely structured, with ripe and soft tannins, good acidity, and pleasant juicy red fruit flavours. A crowd-pleaser, which is extremely food-friendly and would pair well with a variety of dishes.
