The Sierra Cantabria Reserva Unica has a very good price-quality ratio. Full-bodied, complex red wine. The Reserva Unica spent 24 months in French oak Bordelaise casks (60%) and American oak Bordelaise casks (40%), 30% new oak and 70% maximum 3-year wines casks. It is mainly Tempranillo with a few percent to Graciano. It was bottled without filtration and is an excellent wine and comes from vineyards older than 30 years located in San Vicente de la Sonsierra (La Rioja). We work for all Sierra Cantabria wines through sustainable agricultural cultivation.

The Sierra Cantabria Reserva Unica is bright ruby red in the glass. Expressive aromas of currant, cherry, licorice. Juicy on the palate, with red fruit flavors mixed with toasted vanilla and underlying mineral notes. In the nose tobacco, licorice, vanilla, blackcurrant and black cherries jump out of the glass. In the mouth this full bodied wine still has light tannins in the aftertaste. The perfect acidity prolongs the long, spicy, flower-dominated finish. This wine is still young and will improve in the coming years. The Spanish winery Sierra Cantabria was founded in 1957 by Guillermo Eguren. This Reserva Unica is therefore one of the beautiful wines from the collection of Hermanos Eguren .
