Characteristics of Glorioso Gran Reserva

Glorioso Gran Reserva is a Tempranillo wine that Bodegas Palacios cultivates and produces in the heart of the D.O.C.A. Rioja.

Bodegas Palacio, which currently belongs to Grupo Bodegas Palacio 1894, is located in Laguardia, a town in Rioja Alavesa. In their work they emphasise the careful selection of the grapes, the vinification separated according to vineyards, the increase in maceration time and the use of good quality French oak barrels.

In the vineyard the TempranilloGlorioso Gran Reserva variety takes on body like it does nowhere else. The clay-calcareous soils and continental-Mediterranean climate typical of the area provide enough heat and humidity to harvest an extraordinary fruit at the optimum moment of ripeness.

As soon as the Glorioso Gran Reserva grapes are thoroughly selected, they are subjected to cold pre-maceration. Alcoholic fermentation then begins in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature. The wine is then transferred to French oak barrels for about 25 months, and is left to refine in the bottle for at least 36 months before going on the market.

Glorioso Gran Reserva is a reflection of the know-how and tradition of a prestigious international denomination.

Tasting notes Glorioso Gran Reserva

After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
Glorioso Gran Reserva 2012 is a ripe red wine with a base note of fruit and spicy elements. On the palate it is balanced and has a delicate acidity.
