2006 Rioja Reserva Especial, Bodegas Urbina

Tasting Notes

"95% Tempranillo, 5% Mazuelo and Graciano. Aged 18 months in American oak casks (12 months in new oak and 6 in 7 year old oak) and a minimum of 12 months in bottle before release.

Deep ruby red with amber glints, very pronounced, seductive figs, apricots, nuts, savoury vanilla oak bouquet. Voluptuous, sweet middle palate with delicious, concentrated ripe berry, mature fruit broadening out. Wonderful length, classy and complex wine.

Vineyard Information

Bodegas Benito Urbina, a family-owned, Single Estate winery, has 75 hectares of vineyards, 65 of Tempranillo, and 10 of Graciano, Mazuelo and Viura. Total production is about 400,000 bottles of Red Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva and 50,000 bottles of White and Rosé. Four generations of the family have dedicated themselves to the cultivation of their vineyards and the production of wine. In 1975 the bodega began to age and bottle their own wine in order to retain the special characteristics of a small single Estate. Their sole objective, the production of quality wines, has been achieved as the result of careful viticulture using traditional techniques, harvesting by hand and avoiding the use of weed killers and pesticides. The vines are grown in bush form and some are trained by cordon, with controlled yields not exceeding 4500 kilos/ha. There has been a large investment in modern installations, stainless steel fermentation tanks and a bottling plant. Harvesting by the Urbina staff and family ensures the maximum quality of grapes.
