Listed in the December issue of 'Decanter' as the 'best old world red' this Rioja Reserva shows immense character and style. It has lovely aromatic vanilla and red fruit aromas following through on the palate. The tannins are soft and the palate soft and silky with a good length. Rioja Gran Reserve at it best.
