rioja tempranillo 350x230

Rioja region in Spain produces Spain’s most famous wine, also called Rioja. Rioja wines are predominantly red (small number of whites) and red Riojas must be primarily Tempranillo grapes with a small amount of other varietals. Riojas are great wines to pair with food. Spanish Riservas require minimum 3 years aging including 1-year in oak before release and improve with additional years of aging.

Well-balanced with soft tannins resulting from long period in bottle – this 2010 Reserva is prime for drinking NOW.
