The grapes are selected from vineyards that are well exposed to the sun, with a considerable portion of older vines that produce lower yields, resulting in greater concentration.
Blessed by the superb 2009 harvest, this wine has a dark, dense colour. Intense, complex bouquet that confirms its ageing in quality oak: powerful aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants with a depth of toasted notes that blend with very fine oak. Pleasantly full on tasting with concentrated flavours. Clearly a wine of character and structure but with a nice, fleshy texture. Classy and elegant with good potential for ageing.
Just like their Gran Reserva wines, the Reserva is only produced from vintages classed as excellent or very good. The Reserva is matured for 20 months in oak barrels from Central France and is then aged for 18 - 24 months in bottle.
This is a splendid wine to marry with fish dishes such as tuna or it also goes well with charcuterie, beef, game and blue cheese.
