castillo de sajazarra reserva 2012

D.O.C. Denomination of Origin Rioja Red wine 13% 2012
13.50 Bottle 75 cl Tax incl.

Reserve red wine, made almost entirely with tempranillo. We start from very ripe grapes, from low production vineyards.
Between 10 and 20% of the total performs bad-lactic fermentation in new French oak barrels, with periodic batonage. It remains 24 months in American and French oak barrels, ending its stay in wood with 3 more months in the French oak vats. Finally, it remains a minimum of 12 months in the bottle before its commercialization.

Although it is a reserve wine with typicality, it also has characteristics of modernity, with more body and fruit than its brother Solar de Líbano. In it the wood remains in the background, well integrated with the fruit. This wine is only made on average 7 years out of 10.
