AN ESPECIALLY FINE SPANISH WINE: GLORIOSO RESERVA BRONCO

It is noble Tempranillo grapes and aging in French oak, however, that give the Glorioso Reserva Especial elegance and distinction. A deep ruby red color fills the glass, followed by a tantalizing aroma of ripe dark fruits balanced by well-integrated oak and spice.
