Remelluri "Granja" Gran Reserva Rioja 2011

  • The Remelluri estate’s origins date back to the 14th century when monks from the Toloño monastery founded a sanctuary and farm at the site. The vineyards are located along the slopes of the Sierra de Toloño mountains in the valleys of Valderemelluri, La Granja and Villaescusa. The vineyards here are at the highest elevation in the region. Organic farming principles have always been utilized to ensure that the wines remain true to this unique terruño.

    Telmo Rodríguez is at the helm of winemaking, ensuring the highest quality for all of the wines. This Gran Reserva is only made in the best vintages. 70% Tempranillo, 25% Garnacha, 5% Graciano, always with organic farming. Received well with the wine critics. "This vintage shows lively flavors of red cherry, leaf, black olive and smoke weave through this bright red, whose light, firm tannins provide backbone, while assertive balsamic acidity imparts energy. Drink now through 2023."
