Contino Rioja Reserva 2011 Magnum 1500ml

£60.00

A magnum of well-aged Rioja is one of life’s great pleasures. Brimming with cherry, coconut yoghurt, plum crumble, spicy dark chocolate, blackcurrant, pipe tobacco, fruitcake, coffee and vanilla, this double-sized bottle is no exception.

In an attempt to establish a “château” concept in Rioja, Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España – shortened to CVNE, misspelled and forevermore known as Cune (pronounced “coo-nay”) – created Viñedos del Contino. This 62-hectare estate stretches along a meander on the northern bank of the river Ebro. Here it’s sheltered and protected, resulting in it being home to some of the oldest vines in the region, particularly the rare and elegant Graciano. The wines are always super stylish and classic renditions of Rioja, somehow tasting exactly like red wine should.

Contino Reserva has been aged for two years in French and American oak, then for a further two years in the bottle, giving it a superb richness and mouth-filling quality. Pair it with a Sunday roast, rich game dishes, slow-cooked comfort food and anything meaty or mushroomy.
