Winemaker's Notes:

Made from 100% Tempranillo from vines over 30 years of age. Though the legal definition of "Reserva" in the region of Rioja requires 3 years of aging, with a minimum of just one year in barrel, this wine spends 24 months in barriques, and achieves a complete integration of the flavors of grape and wood, plus the mellowness that only time can provide.
