Vivanco Rioja Rose 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit spicy on the nose with raspberry, herb, ground mace and faint apple aromas. Round and a bit large-scaled, though without much of a center. This fills the mouth with its supple texture and creamy cherry fruit but lacks a bit of energy. The moderate finish continues the theme, showing off simple, lightly dusty raspberry fruit and a nice suggestion of citrus on the finale. Certainly easy to drink but it lacks a bit of energy and depth. 86pts

Dinastia Vivanco:
The origins of the winemaking vocation of the Vivanco family date back to the year 1915; to the winemaking district of the village of Alberite, La Rioja, where Pedro Vivanco Gonzalez started to make wine for family use from his vineyards. In 1940 he bought a small wine cellar business in the same village. A curious caption had been carved over the door of that cellar reading: “he who walks by and is thirsty, if the door is, should enter and drink”.
