Ostatu Gran Reserva 2011


Exclusivity of vintages. Tempranillo and Graciano. An elegant expression of the potential of great vintages in Samaniego. 24 months aging in oak casks, 5 months in oak tub and more than three years in the bottle give us a long life wine, elegant and perfumed, with excellent acidity and freshness.
