"Intense ruby colour, with a bright, clean pink rim. Powerfull fruit on the nose with an initial surge of wild strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries, opeing up to a delicate spicy, peppery notes, cedar wood, licorice, and pastry. The palate is vibrant and elegant, expressing the terrior with freshness and intensity. Pleasant and long with a fleshy finish and hints of red fruit and spices."

"I found a very complete 2015 Finca Martelo that followed the style and the quality path of the previous vintages. The release of this wine was an important milestone for Torre de Oña, where they look for the typicity of Rioja Alavesa through a blend of old-vine Tempranillo with 6% other varieties (Mazuelo, Garnacha and even white Viura). 2015 was a healthy harvest, and the wine shows a nice combination of power and elegance. It's clean and modern but with a traditional twist, some developed aromas and very fine chalky tannins from the limestone-rich soils. 80,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2019." -LG, 10/30/2020
