Imported exclusively by United Cellars. A blend of 90% Tempranillo, 5% Garnacha and 5% Mazuelo from a special selection of the best barrels giving perfectly balanced fruit and oak profile. On the nose, enveloping, toasted, smoked and spicy aromas appear in harmony with aromas reminiscent of black fruits. On the palate, the wine is subtle with soft and silky tannins. Then the flavours develop revealing a long-lived and elegant wine. It is very special indeed to be able to buy such great quality Rioja Reserva at such a great price!

Made exclusively for United Cellars, Vina Romita is a small, family-owned winery in Spain's most famous Rioja region, established in 1956. On the nose the wine hints at savoury, earthy spices, with a definite rustic tone, then liquorice, dried herbs and Amaro. The palate is alive with bright, fresh acidity, and the wine is surprisingly, deliciously mid-bodied- 7 years in bottle have made this such a smooth wine, though it can definitely go on longer in the cellar. Won't last long in my house though...
