Rioja (Cuzcurrita del Río Tirón)

Bodegas Urbina Reserva Especial 2004

Size

Urbina's autumnals run through lovely airy red fruits, with strawberry seed richness in a beef-stock savoury register. There s a good volume of fruit on entry, declining to a deep, softly earthen middle with a metal tang run to the wood-spice finish. The Reserva is aged as much as 3 years in mixed French and American oak casks. The wines are often racked to stainless during this ageing, for checking, stabilising, re-blending, confirmation, and they are also aged for a couple of years in stainless after ageing. All are naturally stabilised without fining or filtration.
