Ferrer Miranda Amor de Madre Reserva
70% Tempranillo, 30% Graciano
Tempranillo harvest begins mid-September in the Rioja Alavesa. A week later, the Graciano is harvested. Both varieties are hand harvested and carry out their alcoholic fermentation in controlled temperatures between 78-80F with pump-over and delestages necessary to obtain the structure of a reserve wine. The malolactic fermentation is carried out during the month of November with selected yeast. The varietals then continue their separate fermentation with French and American oak aging for 12 months. The top quality barrels are selected for blending, clarification and filtration. Then the wine rests in the bottle for at least 24 months, achieving greater persistence and elegance.
Aged over 12 months in American and French oak plus 24 months in bottle prior to release.
In the glass it displays a cherry red color with flashes of garnet.
Predominant aromas are of vanilla, cocoa and spices from oak.
Rounded tannins, balanced and elegant. The oaky notes are more subtle than on the nose and are very well integrated. Medium in length with a good ripe fruit finish.
Cheeses, grilled meats, vegetable dishes, in fact, any dishes prepared “with love”.
