La Rioja Alta Vina Alberdi Crianza, Rioja 2010

This is another beautiful wine from one of the best producers in Rioja, La Rioja Alta (see also big brother Vina Ardanza on our site). Vina Alberdi receives the same care as his most popular big brother, Vina Ardanza. Grapes were picked manually and gently transported in boxes in refrigerated lorries. The wine was aged for 2 years in American oak barrels, the first year in new oak and the second in barrels.

Dominating ripe red fruit, currants and liquorice, rounded vanilla, caramel, jam and spices. The wine is particularly smooth and elegant with a medium body. Great value, seriously delicious wine.

"This is the younger of their wines, with even some red berry aromas and spicy oak, quite harmonious. The palate is lively, balanced and polished, with tasty flavors and bright acidity. Delicious." by Louis Gutierrez
