Bargain Rioja no matter which way you look at it.

The Lagrimas wines are all notably good value for money, but we can't argue with this seriously tasty 100% Tempranillo.

Matured for 6 months in American oak barrels (so not quite a crianza), it's a wine of such joy and flavour, with the milk chocolate berries of Tempranillo in a beautifully lively package.

How's it taste?

Vibrant red colours with bright aromas of ripe fruit with hints of toasty oak. On the palate, juicy red and dark fruits are intertwined with spice and toast oak giving the wine complexity and depth. Easy to drink, this wine would make a fine match for tapas, grilled meats or even pasta.

How was it made?

100% Tempranillo from the northern end of Rioja, the wine matured for 6 months in older American oak barrels.

Who made it?

Lágrimas de Mária translates to ‘Maria’s tears’ in English and refers to the winemaker, Mária Martínez, who is the winemaker at Bodegas Patrocino a cooperative winery located in the Rioja Alta sub-area of the famous Rioja Spanish wine region. The wines come from twenty year old Tempranillo vines and the wines was aged in the bodega’s cellar before release.
