It’s not how I remember it!!!!
This is more than a half decent Crianza and it is more than 25 years since I tried this while on holiday in Minorca with my children, but it doesn't seem to have retained the depth that I remember ... This may of course be my fading memory, and the fact I have traded up a bit in that time ... For the price, it is very good value and well worth a try if you are first timer!!!by: Lord Bolt (15/11/2019) - Vintage 2016
Another nice Rioja !
Nice Crianza. Fruity, smooth classic Rioja with taste of oak, red berries and hints of vanilla. Great with casseroles and pork dishes.by: Shaun Towers (21/06/2019) - Vintage 2015
A nice full bodied wine for every day drinking
I have been drinking Glorioso for over 3 years now, unable to find it in the UK I am very glad that I can import it at a decent price. It has a very satisfying flavour and I always have a bottle in my wine fridge. It is an everyday favourite and never fails to impress. It is a good benchmark to rate other wines against with respect to the Taste/Cost balanceby: P Hickey (25/01/2019) - Vintage 2015
An regular favourite
I've always ordered this for the past few years. It never disappoints. Full bodied without being too heavy and can be drunk slightly chilled in the summer.by: Bill Murray (23/01/2019) - Vintage 2015
This is a smooth and easy drinking Rioja.
Full of plum fruits, nice oaked flavour of a typical rioja, its a fair wine at an affordable price. Smooth and easy drinking
Bodegas Palacio was founded in 1894 and figures nowadays as one of the historic wineries in the Rioja denomination, with wines of international renown such as Glorioso, Reserva Especial and Cosme Palacio y Hermanos, in honour of its founder, Don Cosme Palacio y Bermejillo. In 1998 it was acquired by Hijos de Antonio Barceló, who brought its technology right up to date in order to uphold today its top quality profile.
