The wine

Dominio del Águila Reserva is an extraordinary wine. Within a very short space of time, it has been catapulted to the podium of great Spanish red wines, and its prominence has remained and been confirmed in successive vintages. Easily recognisable is its Ribera character but with less opulence than usual and greater elegance. Fragrant and mysterious on the nose, vigorous and with substantial balance on the palate. If a comparison had to be made with another wine, it would be a Vega Sicilia, precisely because of its individual, unique character.

What does this wine taste like?

An aromatic, expressive and floral wine, it adds subtlety and freshness to the typical character of Ribera del Duero wines it confidently displays. Its elegant and lively style has won over international critics and placed it among the very best Spanish red wines. It undoubtedly deserves this reputation thanks to the energy, emotions and balance enjoyed with every sip.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

2019 was a warm and dry low-yielding year, somewhat similar to 2015, and the 2019 Reserva could be the modern version of the 2015—a round, lush and approachable Reserva that is perfumed and fruit-driven, with spices in the background. It's a hedonist cuvée of 95% Tempranillo and 5% other grapes from some of the oldest grapes in the village. It fermented in concrete with indigenous yeasts followed by a slow malolactic in 228-liter French oak barrels, mostly used, where the wine matured for 35 months. It reveals very good integration of the oak that is neatly folded into the wine. It shows the tannic structure of the 2019 vintage. 23,875 bottles and 430 magnums produced. It was bottled in September 2022.
