VARIETY GRAPES Tempranillo 90%, Garnacha 5%, Mazuelo y Graciano 5% VINIFICATION Careful selection of the fruit as it came into the bodega enable us to perform long periods of maceration, so as to ensure good extraction of tannins, aroma and other quality components in the resulting wines. AGEING After fermentation, the wine was racked several times in large American-oak vats before being left to age for 18 months in oak casks. After bottling, Anares Reserva has been kept in our bottle cellar to develop its bouquet and harmonious character. TASTING NOTES Deep cherry red with ruby hues, Añares Reserva is a wine for laying down. Its aromatic complexity includes red berries, liquorice and hints of smokiness, opening up towards animal aromas after opening. In the mouth, it proves to be long and with good backbone, with a reminder of the fruit returning in the aftertaste.

Since it was founded in 1973, Olarra has been characterised by the beauty and complexity of its facilities, known as the Cathedral of Rioja, with its unique 'Y' shaped ground plan, as well as its 111 hexagonal 'egg box' domes. This bodega has been able to combine the most modern winemaking techniques with the traditional vinification and ageing processes of Rioja, creating wines which have been conceived according to strict quality standards.
