Introduction marques de riscal reserva wines are basically made from grapes from tempranillo vines planted before 1970’s grown in the best clay-limestone soils of the rioja alavesa. This variety withstands oak- and bottle ageing well thanks to its good balance of acidity and fine tannin. The graciano and mazuelo varieties whose presence in the blend does not exceed 10% provide crispness and a lively colour. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 26ºc and the maceration time is never more than 12 days. Riscal reservas spend around two years in american oak barrels producing a wine which corresponds to the classic rioja style: fresh fine elegant and very suitable for laying down for many years. Before release for sale it spends a minimum of one year rounding off in the bottle; time enough to show how much complexity tempranillo is able to achieve. Tasting notes cherry-red colour with good robe. Spicy balsamic aromas of great complexity with notes of rip
