The 2017 Reserva of Marques de Murrieta has inspired us because of its great precision. The wine is crystal clear and has an enormous high tannin quality, imparts freshness and depth to the same extent. There is no heat or over-ripening here, pure drinking fun for the discerning. A great Reserva, in this form a model for all Rioja wineries. You can drink this wine already with high pleasure, nevertheless it will develop in the bottle for many years in the bottle. We are excited!
The high quality standard of Marques de Murrieta is also shown by the fact that the basic red wine is the Reserva. No Joven or Crianza is produced.
