1. Bodegas Roda Cirsión
The wine is a blend of Tempranillo, Graciano and Garnacha. This Rioja bodega takes pride in allowing only juice from a single vintage into its wines, unlike other winemakers who use a mix of juices from other vintages in their blends. It has a deep, blackish purple colour and a mix of aromas like fruit, violets, chocolate, mint, eucalyptos.
2. Vega Sicilia Unico
Spain’s equivalent of first-growth Bordeaux grapes, from Ribera del Duero. A very expensive wine that is hard to find, but it’s taste is one of a kind experience. This harmonious red is balanced and deep, offering ripe plum and currant flavors, with black pepper, tobacco, licorice and mineral accents.
3. Torres Mas La Plana
Torres is one of the greatest wine producer companies in Spain, so our list won’t be complete without their name in it. Although all of their wines are great, we chose Mas La Plana because of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that is made of. Known for it’s dense tannins, deep colour, fruity aromas and elegant structure, Mas La Plana had won over 50 awards around the globe.
4. Martin Codax Albarino
A White Still wine, with a ripe lemon taste that has an attractive straw-greenish yellow color. It comes from the Rias Baixas region, with intense floral aromas, and its ripe apple, peach, pear and lemon taste is framed by bright minerality and hints of spice. As experts say: ,, Great, food-friendly wine, that you odd to try if you’re a wine lover,,.
5. Marques de Murrieta Dalmau Rioja
One of the most elegant and luxury wines on this list. ,,It has a complex and velvety nose, with an explosion of aromas of wild fruits, dark chocolate and mineral notes, elegantly combined with the creamy toasting of its ageing in the new French oak barrels.,, – as explained by the winery. In 2012, approximately 22.700 bottles were made, so it’s also one of the rarest ones. If you find it, it’s definitely worth for the money.
6. Condado de Haza (Tempranillo)
Deep ruby wine. Oak-laced dark berries, plum and pipe tobacco, with notes of vanilla and woodsmoke is what makes this one so special. Fleshy and broad on the palate, offering ripe blackcurrant and plum jam flavors along with notes of clove, mocha and cola.
7. Vino Legaris Crianza

A wine made with 100% Tinta Fina variety. Its cherry red color is of notable intensity and with violet edges. Among its aromas, frank and intense, stand out touches of vanilla and coconut. A wine for lovers of big and tannic wines, this will be tamed not only by cellaring but also by choosing powerful rich foods.
8. Shaya Verdejo
Shaya is pale yellow and releases wafts of lemon, peach and fragrant floral aromas. In the mouth the acidity is bright, delivering a refreshing lemon pucker. You might pick up flavors of pear, melon, apples and even a bit of honey that delivers a sweetness that is nicely balanced by the acidity on the finish. This wine pairs well with seafood (oysters, shrimps, scallops or fish), vegetables, rice and pasta.
9. Numanthia Termanthia Toro, Bodegas Numanthia
This estate’s bruiser reds have received praise from many respected voices in the wine world. The flavors of blueberry and currant jam are rich and lasting. Notes of caramel, roasted chestnuts, loamy soil, anise, magic marker and charred wood linger long onto the finish. A wine that simply will leave you astonished.
10. CVNE Imperial Gran Reserva Rioja
Produced from their best vineyard parcels in Rioja Alta, typically from a blend of Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Graciano, this one is a blast. Brilliant ruby-red vine. Complex, highly perfumed scents of red fruit preserves, vanilla, woodsmoke and sandalwood, with a floral quality in the background.
