López de Haro Rioja Reserva 2016 - Magnum 1.5L

Rioja Reserva has a deep ruby red color with a brownish edge, indicating its long barrel aging and quiet bottle aging. On the nose, it is powerful with primary aromas of ripe fruit accompanied by complex spicy and balsamic notes and a slight hint of vanilla. On the palate, the wine is balanced, it is a round and anointing wine with ripe and sweet tannins that give it a long finish: an elegant Rioja classic.

Rioja Reserva is made from tempranillo and graciano, from old vineyards with very low production. The vineyards are located on the poor land of the terraces of the Ebro River in the area of San Vincente de la Sonsierra (La Rioja). The grapes are picked by hand in the second and third weeks of October. From receipt of the grapes in the cellar, they work by gravity. That means no pumps are used, which is better for the grapes and ultimately the wine. The wine is aged for 10 months in French oak barrels from 1 year to 3 years old.
  • About López de Haro

    Located in the historic village of San Vincente de la Sonsierra, Bodega López de Haro rises above a "sea of vineyards" flanked by the Ebro and Sierra de Toloño rivers. The bodega is excavated in its entirety on the side of a mountain. The selection of wines is named after Don Diego López de Haro, founder of the city of Bilbao. Hacienda López de Haro is a series of wines that combines the simplicity and elegance of great classics with current consumer tastes. The terroir in this region is of calcareous clay. This results in a wine with refined freshness and a pleasing length and finish.

    All the wines at Bodega Hacienda López de Haro have something in common: grapes from the best wine regions of the D.O. Rioja, the dedication with which the winemakers work the vineyard and the affection the winemakers devote to the preparation of each wine. From receiving the grapes at the bodega, they work only with gravity for moving the wine. That means no use of pumps, which is better for the grapes and ultimately better for the wine.
