Rioja

Rioja
One of only two Denominación de Origen Calificada regions (the highest classification of Spanish wine) in Spain, Rioja flies the flag for Spanish wine worldwide. Made from the Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes, the red wines are famous for their heavily oak-influenced flavours. Rioja red wines are available in four categories, each signifying the amount of oak barrel ageing the wine has undergone: Rioja has spent less than a year in oak, Crianza at least two years ageing with at least one year in oak, Rioja Reserva must be aged three years with at least one in oak, and Rioja Gran Reserva must be aged two years in oak and three years in bottle.
