Marqués de Terán Versum Rioja

00230314

Signature wines or ‘vinos de autor’ is an expression in Spain to describe those that follow a winery’s or a winemaker’s patterns rather than those typical or traditional in their area.

Versum’s base is a traditional Rioja combination of tempranillo with some graciano to add extra aromas, freshness (acidity) and colour. But a very natural winemaking process with minimum oak flavour contribution during the ageing process and negligible intervention result in a renovated Rioja style.
