Reserve Wines are wines made from a long period aging in barrel and in bottle. The red wines for aging in barrels, must meet certain minimum conditions of an alcoholic strength (over 12%), balanced acidity, absence of fermentable sugars, level of polyphenols, etc. for the evolution of wine during aging is carried out with guarantees of making great good wines Reserve. Reserve wines aged for at least 36 months must, of whom at least 12 have remained in barrels of oak of maximum capacity of 330 liters and the remaining 12 months in the bottle; go to market in the fourth year after harvest. In pink and white wines aging time is 2 years of which his stay in cask will be 6 months, and are offered for sale to the third year of their harvest.
The most widely used type of barrels in the aging of wine is Bordeaux, with a capacity of 225 liters. All barrels filled and closed are placed in rows, one above the other, in the aging room at a temperature between 10°C and 15°C, with fluctuations in temperature of about 5 ° C maximum and a relative humidity of the air will be around 75%. During barrel aging the wine suffers losses due to absorption, greater the younger the barrel, and evaporation, the greater the higher the temperature of the ship and lower relative humidity. If weather conditions are suitable, they favor a micro-oxidation process slow and homogeneous, while reducing shrinkage, ie, loss of liquid by evaporation. To ensure that the barrels are always in good condition, we must ensure that they are always full of wine, if they are to remain empty should be careful cleaning and disinfection newspapers. The best system to move the barrels during aging is gravity, and avoid as much as possible the use of pumps.
Aging is leading to the formation of precipitation of tartrates and unstable coloring matter. If the bottle has dregs at the bottom, we have it standing at least two hours, so that they are deposited and we can eliminate them, and decant the wine before serving to separate the coffee grounds. It is recommended to serve Reserva wines between 18ºc and 20ºC.
