A wine made from Tempranillo grapes from selected vineyards in Gimileo, at the heart of La Rioja.
Temperature-controlled fermentation takes place with long periods of maceration and gentle pumping-over to produce wine with considerable structure, concentration and colour, making ithighly suitable for ageing.
This lasts for 18 months in American oak barrels with the periodic racking carried out traditionally using gravity to move wine from one barrel to another.
The ageing process continues in the bottle, where the wine acquires the further refining needed before it can be sold. The nose and flavor of this Reserva will improve in the following years.
