Characteristics of Glorioso Reserva

Glorioso Reserva is a red wine from the D.O La Rioja produced by Bodegas Palacio, founded in 1894 by Don Cosme Palacio and Bermejillo. This is a single-variety from the grape Tempranillo, the most typical grape found in the region.
The grapes are selected from various vineyards from La Rioja Alavesa, the harvest is performed at the optimum stage for the ripeness of the grape.
Before starting the production process, the grapes are placed in cold stainless steel vats.
Glorioso Reserva is born out of a traditional production method, the fruit of many years of experience in this sector and region.
After a large maceration process, the must of Glorioso Reserva is transferred to French barrels where it rests for 22 months.
Before being sold on the market, Glorioso Reserva rests also in the bottle.
The brand Glorioso was created in 1928 with the goal to offer consumers a range of classic Rioja wines: Tempranillo with a long ageing phase in French oak barrels.
Serve at 17.0ºC

Tasting notes Glorioso 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.
A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
Sight Cherry red with garnet tones.
Nose Intense. Fruity and sweet aromas, reminiscences of herbs, tobacco and the ageing phase. Taste Balanced and fresh, fruity and with a very pleasant mid-palate. The notes from the Tempranillo and the oak are brought harmoniously together.
Sight

Intense red purple colour. Clean and bright.

Nose

The nose has aromas of blackberry and liquorice with notes of fine woods like cedar and vanilla. Subtle and elegant wine.

Taste

The palate is balanced, tasty and enjoyable. There are fruity notes. Soft and well integrated tannins. Long finish.

Sight An intense and bright purple-red colour. Nose Pure with aromas of black raspberries, liquorice, blackberries and fine wood like cedar and vanilla. A subtle and elegant wine. Taste Well-balanced and very enjoyable, with smooth and well-integrated tannins and ripe fruit. A long, tasty and very expressive finish.
