Natalie's Score: 90/100

A terrific, full-bodied red wine at an staggeringly great price! This is a DOCA wine and is produced by Bodegas Y Vinedos Ilurce. Loaded with fleshy dark fruit, mouth-watering action and layers of lip-smacking flavours. this wine was matured in French oak. Lovely!

Alain Charpentier Sommelier Student rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

The Rio Madre is composed of 100% Graciano grapes hardly found outside the Rioja region of Spain.
This full-bodied red delivers aromas of cranberries and a hint of clove. On the palate, the tannins are well integrated and, for a Rioja wine, is surprisingly unoaky. Mouth-watering acidity, red fruit and spices precede a long finish. This wine is a good value for the price.
Pairing suggestions: steak with Montreal spices, turkey with cranberry sauce,
Made from 100% Graciano, a native grape that is now experiencing a renaissance and is highly valued by modern Rioja winemakers both as an important flavour component in blends and for its excellence as a single varietal. Source: Vintage Wine Panel, undated.
