Tasting Notes:
Notes Ruby coloured with iodine rims, bright and high intensity, typical of the Gran Reservas of Ribera del Duero D.O. with a long life still. Complex nose of fruit, compote, minerality and balsamic that changes as the aromas expand in the wineglass. Elegant in the mouth with distinct tannins, complex structure with velvety and rich aftertaste. A Gran Reserva with a lot of life.
