Imperial is one of the great names in Spanish winemaking. It is a true classic in Rioja and was first made in the 1920s. Its name comes from a special bottling for the English market made in a bottle size of a ‘Pinta Imperial’ or ‘Imperial Pint,’ which is approximately half a litre.
Blend: 85% Tempranillo, 15% Graciano, Mazuelo and Garnacha
Intense body of cherry colour with beautiful purple highlights. Attractive aroma of forest fruits, violets, and licorice with reminiscences to Atlantic forest with notes to clove and cigar leaves. In the mouth, we notice its softness and finesse perfectly balanced with a silky tannin, which makes us reach a long and balsamic aftertaste where the aroma is intermingled to make this wine elegant. It perfectly pairs fatty fish, game, red meat, and cured cheeses—recommended service temperature 18ºC.
