For this Reserva wine, we have selected the best wines from the 2008 harvest from the
Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties.
After the wine is produced using a long maceration period, it is aged for 18 months in new
French and American oak barrels. Only 5,900 numbered bottles have been released. With an attractive cherry red colour, this wine presents complex aromas of ripe fruit and fine wood. Elegant on the palate, with a broad, persistent aftertaste.
