Winegrowing

Picked from vineyards located in the Upper Rioja, a zone influenced by the Atlantic.
The soils are predominantly poor limy-clay soils with a specific texture. The combination of the climate and the soil with the tempranillo varietal, originally from this region, renders fresh wines with a great deal of fruitiness and excellent cellaring potential, producing great reserva wines.

Winemaking

San Millán Reserva is made from destemmed and crushed grapes. It macerates for 15 days at a temperature of 28ªC to give it complexity and the necessary structure, after which it is aged for 18 months in barrels of American oak to enhance the Tempranillo’s fruitiness and freshness.
After bottling it is left to age in the bottle at least two years prior to consumption.
