(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

It’s mid weight with a generous texture and a lengthy balanced and fruity finish. This is an outstanding example of well-made Tempranillo and deserves to be poured alone or with a generous helping of prime roast beef
Veldig god vin. Smakte og luktet godt. Drakk den til grillet indrefilet av svin.
