Vina-Zaco-bottleA D.O.Rioja wine made of Tempranillo (100% )

“A groundbreaking, modern and distinctive wine. A wine that tramples convention, arouses the senses and bewitches the palate”

Bodegas Bilbainas is the largest vineyard owner in Haro, in the Rioja Alta subregion. A winery which, since its foundation in 1859 by the Savignon Frères et Cie. family, has been characterised by its high quality wines.

Vina Zaco is the vineyard name where this wine is produced. Is made entirely from the Tempranillo grape, and part of the secret of its charm lies in the winemaking process, based on a single-minded aim: to bring out its virtues of fruitiness and freshness for your savour at will.

When our friend Reverse Wine Snob tasted this wine, found that the 2010 Vina Zaco Tempranillo is perfumed with floral notes (violets and lilacs) plus licorice, black cherry, a little vanilla and a hint of cinnamon. Full-bodied wine with lots of rich fruit, lots of spice and soft tannins.

It’s a very enticing aroma.
