- Situated in the heart of La Rioja Alta, Beronia's Riojas are stylistically straight down the line between modern and traditional styles of Rioja. Their superb Reserva is a selection of the best grapes from the oldest vineyards. The wine ages for 20 months in unique barrels with American staves and French tops. The result is a bold, complex wine with sweet spice and classic dark fruit Rioja flavors with just a hint of smoke.
Beronia Reserva gives an intense ruby red color. It shows an attractive nose with candied fruits and plum marmalade in perfect harmony with sweet aromas such as chocolate. On the palate meaty and fruity. The characteristic notes of the Tempranillo variety, cherry and strawberry accompanied by licorice, dominate and fill the mouth. The balanced acidity and silky tannins guarantee a long and elegant wine. Ideal with red meats, game and roasts. A superb steak night wine! (from Beronia)
