Cantauri Reserva was first produced in 2001, but the winery did not launch its first reserva onto the market until 2011 when it started selling its first Reserva Cantauri 2007 on the Spanish and international markets. The aim was to produce top quality wines.

The fruit comes from some of our oldest vineyards. The vines are over 40 years old and have very limited production. This wine is only made when the vintage is excellent or very good and productions are numbered. The objective is to make the best wine. The barrels were selected for their special fineness and quality. French oak and American oak barrels.
