Marqués de Riscal is one of the oldest Rioja wineries. Founded in Elciego (Álava) in 1858 by Guillermo Hurtado de Amézaga, from the outset, it has been a point of reference in the winemaking business at both national and international level.To make their Gran Reserva wines, Riscal use grapes from vines over 30 years old, Tempranillo, Graciano, Mazuelo, from their own estate vineyards and bought in from associated local growers.Once the wine destined to become a Gran Reserva has been selected, following the coupage of the wines of the new vintage, it is put into American oak casks where it will age for between two and a half and three years. This is followed by a further minimum of three years bottle aging before release for sale.
Deep black-cherry color, almost opaque. Very elegant, complex nose, with aromas of black fruit and lots of spice. It is smooth and round in the mouth, with tannins which are firm, yet silky and very sweet and which envelop the whole palate. The finish is long, lingering, fresh and balanced with a hint of fine elegant tannins.
