Hand-picked Tempranillo grapes do the most in this lovely Rioja. Bursting with ripe berry flavors, this wine also shows notes of cacao, walnut and aniseed spice. Full-bodied with firm tannins, this is a true table wine that goes particularly well with chorizo-enhanced dishes.

Founded in 1985, Barón de Ley is a single-estate winery located in Rioja Baja that sources grapes sourced exclusively from the property’s estate vineyards. This is an innovative step in a region where bodegas typically source grapes from independent growers throughout the area. Baron de Ley's unique take on winemaking blends the best of old and new. The estate is located on a 16th century monastery on the east bank of the river Ebro in Mendavia, and a look inside reveals ancient architecture alongside the latest winemaking equipment.
