Rioja Reserva 2012 Viña Alarde



Founded in 1877 by Don Miguel Martínez Berberana, this is now one of the best selling Riojas. The Reserva is matured for a minimum 2 years in American oak cask and only released when it is ready to drink. Deep ruby red, with delicious vanilla overtones backed up by juicy soft strawberry and morello cherry flavours. Round and full, well balanced, long and elegant. A good choice for roasted red meats such as lamb, or with stews and casseroles.
