We recommend this wine is served in a fine crystal glass half an hour after opening. Ideal with red meats and stews. Serve at room temperature. Store horizontally in a cool, dry place away from vibrations.
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.
