Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) The fermentation is conducted at a controlled temperature of 26 ° C with a maceration not exceeding 12 days. Riscal's reserves remain about two years in American oak barrels, forming a wine that fits within the canons of La Rioja, cool, fine, elegant and with great aging potential classicism. Before leaving the market it has a minimum period in bottle a year

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2008 Vintage) Cherry-red colour with good robe. Spicy, balsamic aromas of great complexity, with notes of ripe dark berries and light toasted nuances. On the palate it is full and tasty, with good structure and rounded, elegant tannins. The finish is long and fresh, with a slight reminder of the fine oak.
