Imperial is one of the great names in Spanish winemaking. It is a true classic in Rioja and was first made in the 1920’s. Its name comes from a special bottling for the English market made in a bottle size of a ‘Pinta Imperial’ or ‘Imperial Pint’ which is approximately equivalent to half a litre.
Deep cherry colour with shades of shiny red. To the nose, aromas of berries and liquorice balanced by hints of clove, rosemary, thyme and tobacco leaves coming from the oak cask ageing. To the palate, it shows its elegance thanks to a gentle tanin providing roundness and freshness. The wine tastes for long in the palate, with an interestingly complex aftertaste. Game and red meats are ideal pairings for this wine.
