Rioja is currently a major driver behind the outstanding progress made by Spanish producers at domestic level and internationally. This is understood from the first sip when you try Marques de Teran. Reserva is an example of a renovated style of the most elegant, velvety and round Rioja wines. Teran have respected the character of the local Tempranillo red grapes without overdoing on extraction, body or tannins and then refined them through enough maturing in oak without exaggerating the toasted oak contribution. The resulting bouquet simply excels.
