The Marqués de Riscal Reserves are basically made from grapes from Tempranillo variety vines planted before the 1970s, located in the best calcareous clay soils of the Rioja Alavesa. This variety supports aging in wood and aging in the bottle well thanks to its good acid balance and its fine tannicity. The Graciano and Mazuelo varieties, whose percentage in the mixture does not exceed 10%, provide freshness and liveliness of color. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 26ºC with a maceration time that does not exceed 12 days. The Riscal reserves remain for approximately two years in American oak barrels, configuring a wine that falls within the canons of Riojan classicism, fresh, fine, elegant and with great aging potential. Before going to the market, it has a minimum period of refinement in the bottle of one year.
Fairly covered cherry-colored wine. Balsamic and spicy aroma of great complexity, with notes of ripe black fruit and lightly toasted. In the mouth it has good structure, it is tasty, dense and with round and elegant tannins. The finish is long and fresh, with a slight hint of oak wood
