Located in Oyón, Rioja Alavesa, Marqués de Vitoria travels the journey of innovation and modernity, and embarks on this journey from the commitment to the environment and the welcoming personality of its land, Rioja Alavesa. The winery and its wines perfectly combine the essence and roots of this land with the ability to innovate.
This Joven (meaning young or youthful, as it sees no oak aging) which is now labelled simply as 'Tempranillo' wine ages in stainless steel tanks in order to maintain a fresh full-fruit character.
Tasting Note: This wine is ruby red with purple highlights. Fresh and fruity, it is a perfect sipper and refreshing even in warmer weather (try it with a slight chill!). The nose shows red berry, blue fruit, and spice, while the palate is medium bodied with food-friendly acidity.
Food Matches: This is a wine that pairs with very lightly seasoned lamb or just a simple salad.
