Marques de Riscal Reserva 375ml 2008

Cherry colored wine quite covered. Balsamic and spicy very complex aroma, with notes of ripe black fruit and lightly toasted. The palate has good structure, tasty, dense, with round and elegant tannins. The finish is long and fresh, with a faint memory of the oak.



This wine pairs well with ham, not very cured cheeses, stews with sauces not too spicy, boiled or stewed vegetables, poultry, red meats, grilled meats and roasts.



Development and Aging



The reserves Marques de Riscal are made basically from grapes coming from vines over 15 years from the Tempranillo, situated in the best clay limestone soils of Rioja Alavesa.

This variety holds up well aging in wood and bottle aging thanks to its good acid balance and its fine tannins. The Graciano and Mazuelo varieties, whose percentage in the mixture does not exceed 10%, bring freshness and vividness of color.

 The fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 26 ° C with maceration time not exceeding 12 days. Riscal's reserves remain about two years in American oak barrels, forming a wine that fits within the canons of La Rioja, cool, fine, elegant and with great aging potential classicism. Before leaving the market it has a minimum bottle aging period of one year.

Marqués de Riscal Reserva Rioja 375ml 2008

With roast lamb fell rather mild. The best thing about this wine, the company.
Brownish red edges. A good smell of flowers, mostly purple colour. A little bit salty but it was very good.

Marques Riscal Reserva 375ml 2008

Reddish towards brown. This red wine has a chestnut background. This red has good body.
We had it with cake.
We drank the whole bottle at a time with friends and a good conversation.
It's hard to be found in stores, so buy it online.
This Marques Riscal Reserva is the best I've ever tasted.

Correct add that shows a classic and traditional character, with abundant presence of tertiary notes and codes. It is the largest production wine from the cellar and a whole standard for this firm that until now had not developed under this category.
