Bodegas Vinsacro Rioja Dioro 2010Product #31693 (In Stock)
Bottle Size Bottle (750ml) Color/Type Red Country/State Spain Price $10 - $30 Producer Bodega Vinsacro Region Rioja Varietal Tempranillo Vintage 2010
A delicious wine from an old-fashioned vineyard treated with loving, modern, care. A blend of Temparnillo (50%) Garnacha, Graciano, Mazuelo, Monastrel and Bobal, all planted mixed together in a 70 year-old vineyard at 450-800 meters of altitude and farmed organically. Dioro represents the best lots from these old vines, aged 12-14 months in new French oak and then further at the winery. A luxury, $46, wine on release, it’s very much an “affordable luxury” at these prices while it lasts.
"Bright purple. Potent dark berry aromas are complicated by notes of vanilla, pipe tobacco and woodsmoke. Fresh and precise, with densely packed black raspberry and cola flavors that opening nicely with air. Gentle tannins build slowly on the clinging finish, with the raspberry and smoke notes echoing."

"The 2010 Vinsacro Dioro opens to an explosion of flowers and ripe blueberries that is very perfumed. It feels quite modern and aromatic with well-integrated oak and a luscious palate. This is produced from a field blend they call Vidau, which, in their case it is Garnacha, Tempranillo and a myriad of other grapes like Graciano and even Monastrell. The wine aged in brand new French oak barrels, and it's clearly a high-end wine with aspirations."Wine Advocate 92 points
