The 2016 vintage of this exceptional red wine from La Rioja is, as usual, a varietal Tempranillo.

Manually harvested in October and exactingly selected, the grapes were vinified in stainless steel tanks. After that, the barrel samples of this Rioja red wine were blended and then aged in French oak barrels for 32 months.

Finally, Marqués de Riscal Gran Reserva 2016 was aged for a futher 36 months in the cellar prior to its commercial release.

This is Gran Reserva red wine wine that embodies the very essence of La Rioja, one of the world's great wine regions.

Intense and complex, this varietal Tempranillo exudes old Rioja nobility. Aromas of old wood, fine leather, undergrowth, Eastern spices, black fruit, toast, black truffles and vegetables.


Bold and round, this wine of the Marqués de Riscal winery has a crisp acidity and an impeccable definition. Fruit and spices harmonize with a mineral and balsamic background. Textured and nuanced, with a long, toasted finish. Great ageing potential. This is Rioja classicism at its best.
