In stock
A classy and complex Rioja for a very cheap price. Torre de Ono is owned by legends of traditional Rioja, La Rioja Alta, although this more modern red is from a single estate in Rioja Alavesa region. Like their other labels, it offers beautifully harmonised characters of ripe fruit and savoury spice. Some of the best value on our shelf. Check it out!

What The Critics Say

91/100 Vinous, Josh Raynolds

"Bright violet. Spice-accented cherry, black raspberry, vanilla and mocha aromas show fine clarity and pick up a hint of smokiness as the wine opens up. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering sappy red and dark berry, floral pastille and cola flavors sharpened by a peppery nuance. Shows very good energy and spicy thrust on the persistent finish, which is given shape by smooth, even tannins." Drink 2022 - 2028

91/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Luis Gutierrez (2017 vintage)

"I was quite impressed by the harmony of the 2017 Finca San Martín, which shows remarkable integration of all its components, good ripeness without any excess and integrated oak (it matured in 60% new American and 40% second use French barriques for 16 months with three rackings) with fine tannins and a clean and precise finish. Great quality for the price. Outstanding for the adverse conditions of 2017. 180,000 bottles produced. — Torre de Oña is the Rioja winery from the La Rioja Alta group where they produce wines of a more modern profile. They purchased it in 1995. In 2016 they started using their new vinification facilities that they reckon will be noticeable in the quality of their wines. They are self-sufficient with the grapes from their 46.2 hectares of vineyards that allow them to produce 260,000 bottles per year." Drink 2020 - 2025
