General information

The Marqués de Riscal reserves are basically made from grapes from Tempranillo variety vines planted before the 1970s, located in the best calcareous clay soils of the Rioja Alavesa. This variety supports aging in wood and bottle aging well thanks to its good acid balance and fine tannicity. The Graciano and Mazuelo varieties, whose percentage in the mixture does not exceed 10%, provide freshness and liveliness of color.
Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 26ºC with a maceration time that does not exceed 12 days. The Riscal reserves remain for approximately two years in American oak barrels, configuring a wine that falls within the canons of Riojan classicism, fresh, fine, elegant and with great aging potential. Before going on the market, it has a minimum bottle refinement period of one year.

General information

In the production of the Gran Reserva, Riscal uses grapes from old vines over 80 years old, from its own productions or purchased from local fixed winemakers. Once the wine has been selected to make the Gran Reserva after the unification of the harvest, it passes to French oak barrels, where it will remain between two and a half and three years, plus another three years in the bottle before its commercialization.

Tasting notes marques de riscal gran reserva

Intense cherry red color, with violet iridescences. On the nose it expresses a complex, balsamic aromatic intensity, in perfect balance between the fruit aromas and the roasted notes of light toasting reminiscent of fine woods. On the palate it is unctuous, in harmony with the fruit, with a good tannic concentration, round and with a persistent finish.

General information

The Barón de Chirel wine arose in 1986 as a result of an experimental production from a selection of grapes from very old vines, between 80 and 110 years old, of very low yield and high quality. From the results of this test, the one that will be the forerunner of what could be called Rioja's new era wines is born. This wine is produced in a very limited way in only the great vintages, where the character of the vineyard and the soil are expressed. and of variety, within a harmonious whole. From the 1995 harvest, Riscal manually selects the grapes for this great wine with the installation of selection tables. Riscal is the first winery to introduce this system in Spain, marking a milestone in the production of quality red wines. de Chirel ferments at a controlled temperature of 26º, in small capacity Allier wooden vats. This is followed by malolactic fermentation in fine-grained Allier oak barrels. Aging will last between 18 and 24 months, depending on the characteristics of each vintage. Once this is finished, the wine is bottled, passing a refining period of no less than 2 years before going on the market
