Barón de Ley Gran Reserva is a red wine from the D.O La Rioja produced by the Barón de Ley. It is made using only Tempranillo grapes.

The grapes used comes from the municipality of Cenicero. Vineyards are poor in organic minerals, which results in a high acidity and concentration in the fruit. The area is greatly affected by Atlantic climate, where it is not uncommon to see rainfall.

As any Gran Reserva, the wine undergoes a long ageing process. It spends 2 years in French and American oak barrels, followed by 3 more years of ageing in bottle, altogether spends 5 years for the whole process before releasing to the market.

This Gran Reserva offers an attractive red ruby colour, starting to show some orange nuances in the border of the glass, sign of its noble aging. It delivers a remarkable aromatic intensity in the nose, displaying a bouquet with ripe fruits and raisins integrated with a toasted and balsamic character. After sometime in the glass these aromas evolve towards seductive traces of infusions, spices and tobacco. The attack in the mouth is very soft, developing an unctuous and round sensation with silky tannins, lively and fresh. Finally, the after taste is long and persistent, recovering memories of fruits and toasted traces, and leaves a pleasant freshness.
