A well matured and very approachable Reserva. It's aged for 30 months in new and medium new American oak casks, and then matured for a further 2-3 years before being released. The result is a beautifully supple wine with mature fruit and sweet spice on the nose and palate.
Martinez Lacuesta are one of the oldest registered brands in Rioja, pre-dating the creation of the Rioja designation itself. The wines are predominantly made from Tempranillo grown high in Rioja Alta to the West of Haro, with smatterings of Mazuelo, Graciano and Garnacha. The exception is the Campeador range which was created in 1917 to allow Martinez Lacuesta to expand their reach. Today these wines are made up of equal portions of Tempranillo from Rioja Alta and Garnacha from Rioja Baja.
