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.
