Grape Variety: 100% Tempranillo
Tasting NotesGarnet red with ruby glints. Complex, explosive nose of blackberries, spices and tobacco well blended with quality French oak. Intense fruit driven aromas. Silky and fleshy in the mouth, it is a classic Reserva at its best, presented in an innovative way by its fruitiness on the palate. Elegant, complex flavours and a good structure. Though very food-friendly, it demands more elaborate meals and stronger meats. It pairs with anything that has dried fruits or spices like vanilla, cinnamon, cloves or nutmeg.
