Review

Made from grapes grown in the winery's own vineyards at Mendavia (Rioja Baja).

The wine is an attractive ruby-red colour and of medium to high density in appearance. The nose displays a toasty, fruit aroma with traces of coconut and toffee, and shows moderate intensity. Powerful, balanced and spicy on the palate, it has notes of ripe fruit and a lengthy finish.

Matured for 20 months in new American oak barrels and subsequently for 24 months in bottle.

Calidad a un precio razonable

Un Rioja Resrva es siempre un certificado de calidad. Y este vino no ha sido distinto. Un nariz bueno y una boca muy equilibrada.
