2017 CONTINO Blanco 75cl (Rioja, Spain)
Style - Rich
Grapes - Viura, Grenache Blanco, Malvasia
Tasting - We thought the 2016 was great, this is even better. Fennel and camomile with plenty of chopped lemon and apple to keep its freshness. Subtle, smooth texture with pleasant umami notes in the background. A class act.
FYI: Rioja is better known for its red wines, but there are some hidden gems with regards to their whites. And here is one.
