Medium-deep ruby colour with clean dark red rim. The nose reveals expressive black fruit laced with hints of blueberry, blackberry, red plum, liquorice, cardamom and mineral nuances along with subtle traces of ageing: coffee beans, toffee and bonbon box. The palate is deep and balanced, with remarkable freshness and elegance. It displays a persistent fruity aftertaste. An ample and succulent wine, which is an outstanding example of contempo - rary Ribera del Duero, at the optimum moment to enjoy it.
Formed by five families in the late 19th century, the La Rioja Alta S.A. winery has been among the leading producers who have helped to establish and maintain the classic standards of Rioja. Their Tempranillo-led Gran Reservas, aged for remarkably long periods in barrels from the producer’s cooperage, are some of the most sought-after wines from the region. "Gran Reserva 890" is their most exclusive wine. Unique, made only in exceptional vintages, it is the essence of the great classic wines of Rioja. While they always upheld standards and tradition, La Rioja Alta S.A. never stopped experimenting and pushing for better quality, offering some of the purest, precise expressions of Tempranillo in the world.
