A truly magnificent Rioja from a family estate. Two generations of the Chavarri family currently run Pagos de Tahola - father Francisco and daughter Ruth. Winemaker Miguel Lopez Nunez is the final part of this winning triumvirate. The house style is based on exuberant fruit from vines grown in some of Rioja's highest vineyards, framed by careful maturation in high-quality French and American oak barrels. Painstaking care is lavished on this superb Crianza. Sourced from the family's own old vineyards, the grapes are hand-harvested to allow the intense fruit flavours to shine through.
