Tasting Notes 

Colour

Deep black-cherry colour with tawny hues.

Nose

Subtle and complex nose, with aromas of black fruit and spice and vanilla from the oak ageing. 

Palate

Harmonious, elegant and smooth yet full-bodied with good tannins. Long and pleasant finish.

Production Method

After a careful selection of the best grapes and gentle fermentation, the wine is kept in vats for a period of 12 months in order to be fully stabilized before being transferred to oak casks for ageing. Gran Reservas are kept in American oak casks for 36 months. Further bottle ageing for a further 3 years takes place before it is released. 

History

Founded in 1877 the Bodega in Cenicero in the Rioja Alta is now a modern winery, with cellaring facilities housing over 50,000 barrels, and this is where Berberana Gran Reserva is matured for a minimum 3 years in American oak cask and a further 3 years in bottle.
