MARQUES DE MURRIETA - Castillio Ygay Tinto Historic Vintages 1978Fine Wine
Bright amber red in colour, with a delicate nose of rich fruit, balsamic/minerals and a hint of 'olorosso' sherry. balanced by firm, subtle oak.
The palate begins with voluptuous warmth, becoming more and more complex in the glass, with hints of spice, leather and exotic fruit balanced by subtle American oak.
The finish is long and lingering, with good acidity and striking youth. This wine is released mature, but will continue to develop well over the next 50 years.
Enjoy with all red meats and game, but also cured ham, strong cheeses and oily fish.
Grape: 75% Tempranillo, 10% Garnacha, 12% Mazuelo, 3% Graciano.
