Fine European Reds Wine Gift Box
Fine European Reds Wine Gift Box
A gratifying, three-bottle gift pack of Old World classics that is sure to light up anyone's culinary designs for the festive season:
2015 Barbaresco, Rizzi, Piedmont
Garnet in colour, with the classic, shimmering orange Nebbiolo tint, this hugely drinkable, highly fragrant, red-fruited, gently spiced, floral Barbaresco is pleasantly textured with invigorating tannins and acidity. Ripe, almost sweet fruit; superbly balanced and in a very accessible, elegant style.
"The 2015 Barbaresco Rizzi is not overripe, but rich and dark instead. Glossy, natural rubber gives it linearity and firm contours. This wine offers pretty Nebbiolo-driven aromas of wild berry, pressed rose, tar and licorice. This is an elegant and contained expression." Drink 2019-2030. 92 pts., The Wine Advocate
2018 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Domaine de Mourchon
A medium, ruby-hued blend of grenache, syrah and mourvedre, offering an attractive nose of gentle spice and ripe red fruit. Rich and elegant on the palate with a touch of oak and great freshness and definition throughout its long finish. Few Old World reds are more appropriate at Christmas than a decent Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and Mourchon provides an ideal option.
2004 Rioja Gran Reserva, Bodegas Urbina
A Gran Reserva made from Bodegas Urbina's best grapes, and a wine whose great depth and intensity has been furthered by two years' maturation in oak barrels, followed by four more in bottle. In what is now full maturity, it has since developed an attractive, garnet-red colour and an aroma that of classic, spicy, mature Rioja yet still with a wealth of intense, stewed autumn fruit. A truly exceptional wine, a truly exceptional gift.
One of Tim Atkin MWs 9 Gran Reserva wines-of-the-year:
"The Gran Reserva bottling comes from slightly better vineyards, according to Ángel Urbina, and has a little more power than some of the bodega's wines. Everything is relative, however, as this is still an elegant, graceful, savoury wine with haunting balsamic sweetness." Drink 2021-25 96 pts, Tim Atkin MW
