Mainly made using Tempranillo grapes grown in the calcareous soils of the Cenicero vineyards owned by Barón de Ley, where the orientation of the slopes, Atlantic climate and low yields offer perfect grapes for this top level style of wine. It is only made in excellent years.

90% Tempranillo 10% other red grapes
Following the most classical methods of Rioja wine, this Reserva was aged for 24 months in 50% American and 50% French oak casks and then spent a further 3 years rounding off in the bottle.
Lovely ruby-red with medium depth of colour and slight brick-red hues
Great aromatic intensity on the nose, with ripe fruit well integrated with the toasted oak and balsamic aromas from the cask. After a little while in the glass, these aromas evolve to produce traces of infusions, spices and tobacco.
In the mouth, the attack is round and balanced, displaying silky tannins while still remaining fresh and lively. The aftertaste is long and lingering, recalling toasted wood and dried fruits.
