A Rioja Reserva, which is defined by its origin and not only by the time its spend oak barrels and in the bottle. The ageing time is determined by the terroir of the origin – the profound and chalky clay soils of San Vicente de la Sonsierra. These give the wines a strength and concentration that has to be tempered by a long ageing. The result is a great wine with potential for many years.
