RATINGS: 91pts Wine Enthusiast

The wine produced on this property, fruity and elegant, is heir to the best Rioja tradition. It is made with an individualised grape harvesting system in which only grapes from the same vineyards that surround the old manor house are used. Their origin in the various plots is noted. The perfect combination of soils, Atlantic Mediterranean climate and refined technique have made Contino, more than 30 years after the first vintage, a reference product both in and outside Spain.

TASTING NOTES: Wine Enthusiast 91 points- Not many white Riojas reach these heights. This youthful Garnacha Blanca opens with tropical aromas of papaya, melon and honey. The palate is whole and fleshy, with welcoming balance. Flavors of spicy oak, lees, vanilla, white peach and melon end long, leesy and with complexity. Drink through 2018..Michael Schachner, May/2016
