Tasting Notes ...
RED WINE - RIOJA - SPAIN
Grape : Tempranillo 85%, Graciano 10%, Mazuelo 5%
Its colour is brillant, medium-to-high depth : cherry red in the centre of the glass with a garnet and tawny rim. Intense and complex to the nose, it develops aromas of spices and new wood (toasty, leather, vanilla and balsam).
On the palate this Gran Reserva is very well-balanced. Powerful, enveloping tannic notes in the mouth that develop into an elegant meatiness and just the right acidity to match any dish.
Serve at 18°-19°C.
Can be kept up to 24 years, but best after 10 to 14 years - ageing in optimum conditions.
