Reviews and Ratings

Licenciado 2015 Burgo Viejo Reserva is a dark and silky 100% Tempranillo for the Rioja wine region. Fragrant with mocha, ripe plum and blackberry aromas on the nose, velvety and mouth-filling with ripe blackberry, blueberry and earthy florals on the palate. Tannins are chewy. - Community Wine Reviews
