    (López de Heredia Viña Tondonia Rioja Reserva) The colour here is fascinating; in terms of pigment a dark red-black, but not that intense, shimmering and transparent. The nose has a very savoury and an earthy-spicy, wet-leafy undergrowth character, with a layer of tightly framed dark fruits behind. A gentle well-toned substance on entry, linear and fresh, nicely placed within a frame of acidity which gives a very crisp backbone to the wine through the middle and finish. There is a gentle youth to the warm cherry fruit, but nothing of the awkwardness of grander gran reservas at this stage. And there is evolving maturity too, tinges of zesty citrus alongside the supple fruit. And a good seam of tannins behind which come through to the finish. Great savoury, slightly juicy, mouth-watering finish. Very good Rioja with a fresh, elegant style.
