A new classic Rioja, Hacienda Lopez de Haro Reserva, a red wine made by Bodega Classica. This winery can be found in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, one of the towns with the highest viticulture tradition in the Rioja Alta.
This wine is a coupage of Tempranillo and Graciano grown on old vines with a low yield; planted in poor soils on terraces on the Ebro River.
The harvest is done by hand in October, during the second and third weeks. As for the aging, Hacienda Lopez de Haro Reserva remains in French oak barrels and in American oak barrels for 20 months. During this period, there is a quarterly racking.
This wine does not suffer from filtrations nor aggressive treatments in order to preserve the natural characteristics of the wine.
Finally, the wine rests in the bottle for a minimum of two years before it is released onto the market.
