The Rioja red wine is served at 12-16°C in deep glasses with a high bowl, filling only a quarter of the glass to taste the aroma that has arisen from its contact with the air. It goes well with spicy and fatty meat dishes, cheese plate.
White glasses are similar in shape to those used for red, but have a smaller volume. Young drinks go well with seafood, fish and light salads. Medium-aged ones are ideal for grilled vegetables and nuts. Matured drinks are suitable for dishes with chicken (both boiled and fried), cheese plate. They are served at 10 to 14oC.
