The perfect accompaniment to all kinds of meats, stews or cured cheeses. We recommended that this wine is served half an hour after opening.
A wine in the Gran Reserva age category must be aged for at least 60 months in oak barrels and in bottles; 24 months of this must be in the oak barrel. A wine classified as a Gran Reserva can therefore only be sold in the sixth year after the harvest.
The contact of the skins with must in the maceration process is longer than usual in order to obtain more structure and body. Afterwards, the wine is aged in American oak barrels and in bottle for more than six years.
