DESCRIPTION

A unique wine from a grape usually found supporting the much more well known Tempranillo. Graciano shares the same root with the Spanish word for graceful. It is known for bringing lift and elegance to the more brooding Tempranillo. On its own it shows that graceful side but we also get to see the darker side too. There is hibiscus, anise and other lifted spice qualities but also a darker fruit quality and nice tannins. A lot of wine for the money.
