Elaboration of Imperial Gran Reserva 1998
Imperial Gran Reserva 1998 (Graciano, Mazuelo and Tempranillo)
TASTING NOTES OF Imperial Gran Reserva 1998: Bright and clean red color with cherry hues on a ruby background. The nose is elegant, spicy, with hints of black licorice and balsamic aromas reminiscent of barrel aging. The palate has a soft, velvety and intense that they do persist in time and memory entry.
