Tasting Notes

Icon Edition Reserva Especial pours a deep ruby red, almost like garnet around the edges. On the nose, it offers notes of jammy plums, a mix of forest fruits, and hints of blueberry. Thanks to its time in barrels, there's also a hint of spice and balsamic vinegar. On the palate, it's dry and grippy, yet full of flavor. Expect a long finish with whispers of rum and blackberry.

Production Process

The Icon Edition Reserva Especial is a bold blend. Crafted from Graciano and Tempranillo grapes that ripen under La Rioja's warmth, this cuvée bursts with character. Hand-harvested at the perfect moment, the grapes ferment in large wooden bins before gracing French oak barrels for several months. This is followed by additional bottle aging, resulting in a complex and captivating old-world wine that embodies the essence of Rioja DOCa.
