Note: the 2o1o Vina Zaco is no longer in stock, but please see our 2011 Vina Zaco which we’re sure you will also enjoy!
Produced from a 100% Tempranillo vineyard outside Haro, the same village where Lopez de Heredia’s famed Viña Tondonia lies, this is a bright, fresh and fruit forward take on Rioja. Red cherry fruit, gentle spice and loads of drinkability here.
Vina Zaco is a Rioja with a Contemporary Twist. Vina Zaco takes its name from one of the oldest vineyards in Bodegas Bilbainas in the Rioja Alta.
It is neither a Crianza nor a Reserva. Zaco is simply ready when award-winning international winemaker Diego Pinilla believes the wine is reaching its full potential. Every year Diego will identify the perfect moment to bottle Zaco. Its back label says it all: “A wine with just one guideline: to be Rioja.”
90 Points – Wine Spectator:
This red shows focus and good density, with ripe fruit flavors of black cherry and plum accented with toast and coffee, all supported by well-integrated tannins. Leafy and minerally accents linger on the finish. Drink now through 2016. 10,000 cases imported.
