With a minimum age of 60 months, of which at least 18 months have been spent in oak barrels with a maximum capacity of 225 liters, Castillo de Santa Barbara Gran Reserva delight us with its ruby red colour, almost brick colour.
Its still intense aromas of ripen red fruits mixed with touches of toasted aroma from oak ageing, together with its pleasant taste in mouth and tasty long lasting end has conquered the jurors´ palate.
Castillo de Santa Barbara Gran Reserva is excellent as a gift and special event. It matches well with grilled and roasted meat.
