Vina Real Rioja Reserva

Tempranillo: 90%, Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo: 10%

Wine made from high quality plots located in Rioja Alavesa manually  harvested. After a cold maceration, the alcoholic fermentation is  carried out in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature. It ages  in new and second use barrels (70% french and 30% american) where it  remains an average of 22 months. Once in the bottle, the wine ages in  Viña Real cellars for a minimum of one year acquiring the necessary  roundness before it is released to the market.
