Tasting Notes

Based in the Rioja Alta village of Badarán, Martínez Alesanco is a truly original bodega producing tasty, characterful wine for laughably low prices. They grow all their own grapes in their home village of Badarán, one of the coldest zones of Rioja Alta. The vineyards are closer to the Sierra de la Demanda mountains, a range whose elevation and visible snow covered peaks are even more dramatic than the Sierra Cantabria range to the north. Martínez Alesanco's Rosado is made from Garnacha and white Viura grapes in a typical "clarete" style for which this river valley is justly famous (the vineyards that Muga sources for their popular rosé are not too far away). Bright red berries, juicy blood orange and ripe citrus fruit combine to produce this mouthwatering, delicious rosé. You simply must try this one. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

    A delicious rose that offers both great taste and value. It is dry with a beautiful light pink color. In the mouth there are nice and creamy red fruit flavors and a a dry finish. Great alone it will go well with vegetarian dishes and fish.

    I poured this Rosado recently at our Summer Rose tasting and far and away this was the days most popular. This little stunner knocks it out of the park for a pittance. Juicy, mouthwatering and fresh with notes of blood orange, smashed strawberry and tangerine zest this is perfect for grilled prawns, paella or mussels with chorizo. Good stuff!

    Made in the typical clarete style of Rioja, combining the use of both red Garnacha grapes and white Viura grapes. Aromas initially of light red fruits like strawberry along with ripe peach and blood orange. There is also a marked toasty and minerally quality to the wine as well. The palate is juicy and fresh, whilst at the same possess a more round and rich palate than typical of many rosé wines. A perfect choice for sipping on its own or accompany a variety of cheese and charcuterie options
    Top Value!
