Tinto Pesquera Reserva 2015 is a wine that all wine lovers need to try. Tempranillo grape of the highest quality and the know-how of Familia Fernández Rivera come together in this great red wine with good ageing potential. If you love Rioja, you ought to try the Fernandez Family Ribera del Duero (who by the way, pioneered the denomination of origin). The wines from Ribera tend to have a deeper colour, more tannins, more intense black fruit character, fuller bodied than those from Rioja.
