“A pure Rioja. Full-bodied wine with red fruit and a long finish with soft wood tones. 17 months aged in French (70%) and American (30%) oak. The Remelluri Reserva has a well-defined nose of blackberry leaf, mint, bay leaf and balsamic. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, fresh acidity and a nice, smoky finish with a hint of black pepper. This is a "serious" Rioja.
“Taste and appearance of the glass Remelluri Reserva with a deep ruby red color stands out. On the nose aromas of exotic spices and tobacco, traces of orange peel and cherries. In the mouth flavors of ripe dark cherries, salt, chocolate and wonderful ripe tannins. Overall, a perfect image, charming and extremely elegant. Serving This Remelluri Reserva goes well with dark and braised meat or aged cheeses. The grape Remelluri was pressed from the grapes Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano, Viura and Malvasia. The Remelluri Reserva 2009 one of the few red wines, which also white vines are concomitantly still in the old northern Spanish tradition, here Viura and Malvasia. This mixture leads to a special freshness and finesse complex.

The expansion takes place in the wood after careful selection of the best barrels. This creates a wonderful complexity, marked by velvety and exceptionally elegant and velvety tannins. Fine and silky, full-bodied and complex. Origin This Spanish red wine comes from the wine-growing region D.O.Ca Rioja.”
