"Cherry red with ruby highlights. Complex, fine aromas. Round and well balanced on the palate, as a result of its long period in the bottle. As is usual in the Cerro Anon Reserva, the components were chosen with classic Rioja wines in mind. Made from Tempranillo 80%, Garnacha 5%, mazuelo and Graciano 15%. The grapes are fermented at a controlled temperature of around 30 degrees C. Medium length maceration time. For aging the wine spends 20 months in the cask, this Reserva wine is now at its peak for tasting, promising an excellent future evolution over the next few years." - Winery
"Bodegas Olarra is located on the outskirts of Logrono, right in the heart of the Denominacion de Origen Calificada Rioja and within the prestigious Rioja Alta sub-district. 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."
"In Olarra we believe that it is by taking perfect care of the grapes that a fine wine is made, so we supervise every detail to the maximum. In making its wines, Bodegas Olarra only uses those berries which meet a set of strict conditions. Currently, Olarra offers several labels to the market and behind each of these is a wine with its own identity. Its star wines are the red oak-aged wines. All in all, a wide range of wines whose quality has been acknowledged in the world's most important contests." - Winery
