This is another beautiful wine from one of the best producers in Rioja, La Rioja Alta. 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. Wine was aged for 2 years in American oak barrels 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 medium body. Great value, seriously delicious wine!

Louis Guitarrez for Robert Parker: "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." 91 points

La Rioja Alta is one of the foremost estates in the Rioja region, formed in 1890 by five Riojan and Basque families. It is particularly known for its classically-styled, spicy Gran Reserva reds that can age gracefully for many decades. Their wines are great examples of classic Rioja, having their own cooperage, manual racking, long ageing periods.
