Green-gold color. Powerful, smoky and leesy, with dense orange, poached pear, baked apple and oak spice aromas.

Thick, creamy and suave, the potent orange and pear flavors strongly accented by leesy oak spices and vanilla.

Very deep and long on the finish, showing a clinging, oily quality. This needs serious, rich food.

Records from 1672 prove that the De Gregorio family has been involved in viticulture and winemaking for several centuries. In fact, Nicholas De Gregorio was, for almost 40 years, the vineyard manager for the oldest winery in Rioja, Marques de Murrieta. He is a zealous defender of the traditional Rioja grape varieties such as Graciano and Malvasia. Miguel Angel De Gregorio graduated from the University of Madrid with degrees in Agricultural Engineering and Enology. He has proven in his short… Read more

The first of two whites, the 2012 Blanco is mostly Viura with some 5% Malvasía Riojana (also known as Alarije in Extremadura and Subirat Parent in Penedès) sourced from vineyards planted on clay-rich soils with deep gravels averaging 55 years of age in the village of Briones. The must fermented in new French oak barrels with indigenous yeasts where it matured for a total of 14 months, the first seven of which it was in contact with the lees and was stirred twice per week. It has aromas of baked bread, yeast and lees, with an herbal hint (than made me think of a Sancerre!), a mixture of lemon and honey and plenty of earthy, mineral sensations. The oak is perfectly integrated with the fruit and the palate shows austerity, mineral, earthy, with acidity that needs bottle age. It should also develop more complexity, as it feels very young an undeveloped. A bit disconcerting, because it feels so fresh and Atlantic, but it's a great showing. 32,000 bottles produced.

Sept 2013 By Josh Raynolds.Bright yellow. Lively smoke- and mineral-accented aromas of tangerine and pear, with a hint of melon adding depth. Juicy and smooth in texture, offering sappy orchard fruit flavors and a hint of bitter citrus pith. Finishes dry, nervy and very long, with a bracing jolt of minerality and excellent focus.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 89 Points (2011)
Dusty, nutty aromas of baked apple are mature and pretty. This blend of 90% Viura and 10% Malvasia feels healthy, round and whole, with balancing acidity. Peach, melon and baked apple flavors finish long and secure. For a four-year-old white Rioja, this is in fine shape.
