    RESERVA Quality Spanish wine is often graded Crianza, Reserva or Gran Reserva according to the length of bottle-ageing and barrel-ageing it has undergone. Red Reserva wines are at least three years old, having spent a minimum of one year in cask, and white Reserva wines are at least two years old with at least six months spent in cask. A Gran Reserva wine is a top-quality wine. A red must be aged for at least two years in an oak cask and three years in the bottle. White wine must be aged for four years, with at least six months in cask.
