Tasting notes

Intense garnet red colour, with a clear rim. Outstanding aromatic intensity on the nose, with spicy and balsamic liquorice, clove, nutmeg and black pepper notes, enveloping a subtle hint of ripe red fruit: brandied cherry and raspberry jam. The palate is well-balanced, fresh, with a broad range of flavours and soft, round tannins, leading to a spicy, balsam-like aftertaste on the finish.A Viña Ardanza in its prime and with a long life ahead of it.

Discover

Formed by five families in the late 19th century, the La Rioja Alta S.A. winery has been among the leading producers who have helped to establish and maintain the classic standards of Rioja.
Their Tempranillo-led Gran Reservas, aged for remarkably long periods in barrels from the producer’s cooperage, are some of the most sought-after wines from the region. And while they always upheld standards and tradition, La Rioja Alta S.A. never stopped experimenting and pushing for better quality, offering some of the purest, precise expressions of Tempranillo in the world.
The Tempranillo (80%) comes from our La Cuesta and Montecillo vineyards in Fuenmayor and Cenicero. Both are over 30 years old and their soils are predominantly clay-limestone. The Garnacha grapes (20%)come from a 70ha vineyard with deep rocky soils at 500 m elevation in Tudelilla (Rioja Oriental). Known as La Pedriza, the site has outstanding conditions to grow this variety.
The final blend was bottled in June 2020 for further bottle aging prior to release.
