Marques de Riscal Gran Reserva Rioja DOCa
Marqués de Riscal has always been a pioneer company that is a reference in the global wine industry. Created in 1858, it was the first winery in 'La Rioja' to make its wines using the Bordeaux methods. More recently, it officially opened “Ciudad del Vino” (City of Wine) with a building designed by the world-renowned architect Frank O. Gehry, which is the most avant-garde building to date used by a Spanish winemaker. Marqués de Riscal has always been a pioneer company that is a reference in the industry.
To make their Gran Reserva wines, Riscal use grapes produced by old vines over 80 years old, from estate vineyards and bought in from regular local growers.
Intense black-cherry colour with violet hues. On the nose it expresses its complex, balsamic, aromatic intensity, in perfect balance with the fruit and lightly toasted aromas which recall fine wood. In the mouth it is smooth and full, in harmony with the fruit, with good concentrated tannins, round and with a long, lingering finish.
