Vivanco's Reserva is an excellent, Spanish red wine cuvée made from the Tempranillo (90%) and Graciano (10%) grape varieties.
A clear and deep cherry red gleams in the glass of this wine. The complex bouquet of Vivanco Reserva Tinto blends scents of preserved fruits, mineral notes, vanilla from new oak and subtle spicy nuances. The elegant tannins are perfectly integrated. Overall, this full-bodied red wine presents a good acid structure and balsamic notes. The finish delights with a wonderful complexity and elegance.
The bottle was modeled on an original 18th century wine bottle on display at the Vivanco Museum of Wine Culture.

Food recommendation for the Reserva from Vivanco
