Macan Clasico 2017, Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia
Black fruits and balanced flavour profile
A red wine produced by Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia, a joint venture between the Rothschild family of France and the Alvarez family of Spain. It is made from a blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes, grown in the Rioja region of Spain.
On the nose, it is characterised by intense aromas of black fruit, such as blackcurrant and blackberry, along with hints of spice, tobacco, and oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and rich, with firm tannins, a good acidity, and flavours of black fruit, a touch of liquorice, and a hint of vanilla. The finish is long and complex, with a delicate balance between fruit and oak.
Pairs well with a wide range of foods, including red meats, game, and hard cheeses. The wine is a great example of the high-quality red wines that can be produced in the Rioja region of Spain, and it offers excellent value for its price.
