Marques de Riscal Reserva 2014
Marques de Riscal produces a wine that matches the classic Rioja style: fresh, fine, elegant and with great aging potential.
Marqués de Riscal Reserva wines are mainly made from grapes from tempranillo vines (90%) planted before the 1970s, grown in the best terroir of Rioja. This variety has a good aging potential thanks to its balanced acidity and fine tannins.
The Graciano (7%) and Mazuelo (3%) bring a crisp and a bright color.
This 2014 vintage adorns an intense black-cherry colour with good depth of colour and hardly any signs of evolution.
Very expressive aromas on the nose with notes of liquorice, cinnamon and black pepper, with just a subtle hint of the long cask-ageing, thanks to its great complexity and ripe, concentrated fruit. Fresh and easy to drink on the palate, good backbone and lovely, polished tannins.
The long, persistent finish leaves gentle balsamic reminders of the finest quality.
The advice of 12bouteilles: To serve between 16 ° C and 18 ° C, it goes well with red meats, vegetables and soft cheeses.
