Solar Viejo 2017, DO Rioja
Solar Viejo 2017 is a young red wine from La Rioja, pure and elegant, full of aromas with a medium intensity taste.
Sommeliers recommendation: Rice dishes, pasta, tapas and other light aperitifs, mild cheeses, cooked meats.
Tasting note: Intense ruby red with notable violet flashes. On the nose there is an explosion of ripe red fruits, predominantly raspberry and strawberry, typical of young red Rioja Alavesa. These are followed by rather more subdued red fruit aromas and a touch of milky fruit yogurt. On the palate there is a medium acidity and a wonderful liveliness, with just a hint of prickle, typical of such a young wine. Soft supple tannins make this a satisfying easy to drink wine. The finish is medium in length, and shows good, clean vivacious fruit.
