The Sierra Cantabria Reserva has a very good price-quality ratio. The Sierra Cantabria is a 100% tempranillo of 30+ year old vineyards located on calcareous clay with gravel. Environmentally integrated agricultural cultivation, with respect for the environment, according to the biorhythm of the plant. The average yield is low and is around: 35 Hltr/Ha. The hand-harvested bunches are selected in the vineyard and in the winery through a double sorting table. The harvest date: October 22 to 28, 2013.

The grapes are completely destemmed. Temperature-controlled fermentation between 28 and 30 degrees Celsius with native yeast selected from our own vineyards. Extended post-fermentative maceration on the skins for 11 days, with pumping over twice a day at the beginning and a light pumping over daily at the end. The wine then spends 17-18 months in Bordelaise barrels of (70%) French and (30%) American oak.

The Sierra Cantabria Reserva shows poise and balance coming from the wonderful year 2014. The wine is medium bodied with spicy, smoky and creamy flavors and good acidity. A firm and silky red with beautiful brightness. Dark berries, hints of cedar and tobacco. In the Tab: Appendix you will find the official fact sheet of this beautiful Rioja Reserva.
