Paternina Red Band Reserve Wine

Founded in 1896, Federico Paternina establishes this winery on a site with cellars excavated in the 16th century in Ollauri Rioja Alta. Its origins go back to Eduardo de Paternina, father of Federico and Marqués de Terán, one of the pioneers of modern viticulture in Rioja at the request of his close friend the Baron de Rothschild, who had acquired Château Brane Mouton years before.


Yellowish-brown soils with low water retention which, together with low rainfall, produces low yields and grapes concentrated in aromas and high-quality colors. After careful fermentation at temperatures not exceeding 28°C,
the wine is aged in oak barrels and then bottled for a combined total period of 36 months before it is released on the market.


It goes well with pomegranate, barbecue, rib eye steak, or chocolate cake.

CATA's notes


Brilliant red with hints of terracotta.


Very elegant on the nose, given its fine aging bouquet and hints of vanilla.


Good structure and a lot of body. Complex and balanced.
