Bodegas Baigorri, DOC Rioja 'Belus' 2015Regular price €34.00
Mazuelo, also known as Carignan, is one of five permitted varieties in red Rioja, and in Baigorri's 'Belus' blend it is combined with small amounts of Tempranillo and Garnacha fruit to give a Rioja with a distinct character and presence.
Mazuelo contributes rich colour, relatively high alcohol and firm tannins to the blend, and complements the rounded red fruit flavours of Tempranillo and the power and aromatic intensity of Garnacha (elsewhere Grenache).
Fresh and elegant, this subtle, smooth red has complex aromas, with rewarding, muscular fruit and generous body on the palate. The finish is long and mellow, with fine-grained tannins.
