Vineyard

Barón de Ley Reserva is made using  grapes from our vineyards in the Rioja Oritental subregion, mainly the estates in Mendavia and Los Almendros in Ausejo.

The grapes from this area provide a concentrated, balanced and drinkable character to this wine.

Vinification and ageing

Following manual harvest and manual selection, the grapes ferment in our temperature-controlled state-of-the-art stainless steal vats where we search for the ideal balance between extraction and aromatic preservation.

After a minimum of 20 months ageing in American-oak casks, this wine finds its plenitude rounding off in the bottle.

icono ojo Colour

Clean and bright with a medium robe and a ruby ​​red color.

icono narizAroma

On the nose it is complex with aromas of red fruits, sweet spices with a balsamic background.

icono bocaPalate

After a powerful attack the sensation of soft, supple volume gradually extends across the palate for a creamy finish. The aftertaste reminds you of the red berry fruit mingled with hints of wild herbs.

Food pairing

In Rioja this wine is enjoyed with one of our most notorious and simple dishes: Patatas a la riojana, a hearty potatoes and chorizo-based stew.

It is a great wine for Sunday roast, stews, goose or turkey.
