Glorioso Gran Reserva 1978

Located in Laguardia,between the Sierra Cantabria mountains and the Ebro river,Bodegas Palacio is at the heart of a group of wineries set up in 1894,today making wines in Ribera del Duero,Rueda and Toro,as well as Rioja. The location bodes well for its Tempranillo grapes,grown on high-altitude,chalky clay soils with a south-facing aspect,all in Rioja Alavesa. New French oak barrels are used in the ageing process,which lasts at least 24 months, followed by further ageing in bottle.Great Gran Reserva Rioja,such as this 1978 Glorioso can age wonderfully for 40 + years.Graceful, elegant and berry fruited with citric freshness in a slightly rustic style.
