This is the cuvee that represents the house style and wants to showcase the landscape of their estate, blending grapes from their 108 hectares of vineyards located at altitudes ranging from 550 to 800 meters altitude, with vines aged between 35 and 80 years. It's mostly Tempranillo with some Garnacha and Graciano, fermented with natural yeasts and aged in barrel for some 16 months before being bottled. One of the benchmark estate wines of Rioja in our opinion.
"This is a lean and finely textured red with blackberry and blueberry
character. Wild herbs. Burnt orange peel. Medium body. Tight and
refined. Drink now." 93 points James Suckling
"The flagship red 2013 Reserva, the wine most people call simply
Remelluri, was cropped from a cool, wet, challenging year, and it has a
little less alcohol and higher acidity than the previous harvest. It had
an elevage of 20 months in oak barriques. It has an herbal twist
reflecting the conditions of the year, and it is developed and polished.
It has the grippy, Nebbiolo-like tannins that are a signature of the
Remelluri wines, a little more evident in a year like 2013. A Remelluri
for food." 93 points The Wine Advocate
