Product Description
Details

A classic Spanish red wine from the DOCa Rioja, Martínez Lacuesta Reserva is made basically from Tempranillo, complemented with Graciano and Mazuela (the local name of Carignan).

The grapes were sourced from vineyards surrounding the facilities of bodega Martínez Lacuesta, at 450 metres of altitude. Vines are 20 to 35 years old.

Traditionally vinified in stainless steel tanks, after a 4 day maceration this Rioja red wine was fermented for 20 to 25 days under controlled temperature. Then Martínez Lacuesta 2010 was aged for 30 months in new and semi-new American oak barrels. Bottled in January 2014, it was aged in the cellar for a further years until its commercial release.

Aerate this Reserva red wine at least 30 minutes before drinking.

Appearance

Clean and bright, the red wine Martínez Lacuesta Reserva is bright cherry with a garnet rim.

Nose

Deep, mature and quite complex, this blend of Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuela carries aromas of sandalwood, leather and clove, with hints of mulberries and blackcurrants, some earthy and balsamic notes and notes of Havanna cigars.

Palate

Savoury and layered, with a crisp acidity and tamed tannins. This wine of bodega Martínez Lacuesta is an example of old school elegance, with remembrances of chocolate, toast and old wood. Long finish reminiscent of spices, balsam and dry earth. 

Our personal opinion

A wine of great noblesse, Martínez Lacuesta Reserva 2010 is a delightful Rioja.
