Review

Vivanco Reserva is made with a selection of the best Tempranillo and Graciano grapes harvested by hand from vines planted over 35 years ago in Briones. They are vinified separately before blending to create the wine which then ages for 24 months in French and American oak. It is left to stand for 24 more months before being released onto the market.

The result is a complex and spicy wine. The whole process from the vineyard to ageing provides a unique reinterpretation of Rioja wine traditions. An elegant purple-coloured wine with terracotta edges, it offers classic aromas embellished with cinnamon and cherries. Silky yet intense in the mouth, Vivanco Reserva is a modern wine but respectful with tradition. History and culture are also present in the final product. The design of the bottle is inspired by an 18th century bottle on display in their museum and the label features the painting "Naturaleza muerta" (Still Life) by the Cubist painter Juan Gris.

A bargain

This is a very good wine for the money. Not so many wines that you could describe fairly as “fine” are available for so little. What impressed me most was the intensity of the flavour and length of the finish. You can certainly pay a lot more for less excellent wine.

ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo

Rioja dalle note classiche, ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo, consigliatissimo nella versione magnum che esalta tutte le note di frutti rossi

Bonita botella!

Una gran botella para impresionar! Nos cambiaron la añada pero se ve que solo hacen estas botellas on añadas escelentes, así que un gran vino con el que disfrutaremos en buena compañia

Great value reserva

We tried many reserva wines when touring la Rioja, and this one was one of our favourites. For an everyday red this is great value and tastes great. Full-bodied but not overpowering, so nice to drink alone, but also good with red meat.

Great Wine!

I love the Vivanco Reserva for years now! It's a perfect balance of tradition and a modern interpretation of the Rioja Style.
