Nota de CataTasting notes


He noted for its bright and vivid maroon with incipient red cherry trim, intense layer.


The first olfaction is very intense, with hints of spicy, balsamic and ripe fruit that after a slight agitation of the glass, discover new aromas of black pepper, sweet licorice, nutmeg, coffee, vanilla and cinnamon.


The step is packed with flavors mouth with an acidity balance and with friendly and highly polished tannins that enhance the harmonious structure of this new crop. Aftertaste complex and elegant with spicy and balsamic memories.

Descripción de Viña Ardanza ReservaDescription of Viña Ardanza Reserva


One of the most renowned red wines in Spain. A very complicated vintage, with irregular maturities where the work of plot selection and selective harvests were the key to obtaining a wine of exceptional quality once again this year. Viña Ardanza is one of those few wines that is always ready to drink from the moment it is launched (not in vain it remains in the cellar for 7 or 8 years until it reaches the market), until decades later if the ageing conditions are suitable. Among its fundamental qualities we find the balance, silkiness and power of a great emblem of Rioja wines. One of the keys to its versatility is that it is one of the classic Rioja wines with the highest percentage of Garnacha in its blend, albeit from vines over 50 years old. It tops the list of the most popular wines in the €20 range, which can be paired with roast lamb, red meat, big game, highly seasoned fish stews and cured or smoked cheeses. It is also one of the perfect wines to drink at barbecues with friends.

This farm (70 ha) has unbeatable conditions for the cultivation of this variety and is planted on a very poor, covered with boulders, which offers us a grape of great varietal typicity, very rich in aromas and pleasant and fine structure .
