Vina Ardanza Seleccion Especial 2010 La Rioja Alta
An exceptional vintage of a great Riojan classic.
Vina Ardanza's 'Seleccion Especial' is only produced in the very best of vintages. 2010 is the first in 19 years, and only the fourth in history. A concentrated red wine that is powerful but also subtle and silky. Justly awarded 96 points from James Suckling and 95 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, this one is likely to be one of the best examples of a Rioja Reserva you will ever try.
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.
