Ontanon Rioja Reserva (magnum)
Tasting notes. The Wine Advocate, 90 rating
The sleek and polished 2010 Reserva revealed good ripeness and balance and a nice combination of primary notes with hints from the ageing in oak barrels—chocolate, toast and smoke. The palate is medium-bodied with balsamic flavors and polished tannins. Approachable and pleasant.
.The town of Quel is the origin of a wine reference in Rioja Oriental. It is in Quel where in Ontanon have been cultivating vines for more than 80 years.
Important to highlight in the selection of grapes for this exceptional Reserve is undoubtedly the varieties used, since although its main source is Tempranillo, we would also highlight the Graciano variety that comes from one of our wildest and most beautiful vines "LA PASSED. ”Of crisscrossed and asymmetrical hills, it is of unmatched beauty for the nature lover and enjoys difficult soil and little rain.
Long maceration with controlled temperature of 26-28ºC.
24 months in oak barrels (American and French).
Thoroughly controlled racking every 4-6 months.
Intense red, iridescent tiles, it is conceived as a wine of aging.
Complex and rich aromas linked to the terroir. Inhale the aromas of raspberries, savoring the effusion of strong chocolate.
Old well assimilated. Ripe fruits on a toasted background.
Cured and Iberian Ham and Cheese, Pâtés, Roasts and Strong Meats.
Intimacy is the keynote of an intense, spicy and smooth red wine, which glides offering a total feeling of confidence. It is a wine to escape, to taste and enjoy, thanks to its complex aroma of ripe fruits on clean toasts.
