Product Description
Details

Here are some great news. The 2010 vintage of Viña Ardanza Reserva Magnum was so good that the winery decided to add the words Selección Especial on the label of the wine.

A blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Grenache, this Spanish red wine is made from over 30-year-old vines located at 600 metres above sea level.

Harvested in 15-kg. boxes, the grapes were selected and fermented in the cellar. After that, the Tempranillo wine was aged for 36 months in 4th year American oak barrels. As for the Grenache, it was aged for 30 months in 2nd and 3rd year American oak barrels.

Both of the wines were racked six times along the process.

Finally, this red wine from La Rioja produced by La Rioja Alta was bottled and aged for a further years in the cellar prior to its release.

Aerate Viña Ardanza Reserva Magnum 2010 1 hour before drinking.

Nose

This blend of Tempranillo and Grenache exhibits some mature, dreamy, elegant aromas of balsam, Havanna cigars, cocoa, cedar, leather, black fruit and Eastern spices. A wonderfully evocative, typical Rioja nose.

Red berries, black pepper, toast, Moroccan leather, spices, menthol and black truffles. Viña Ardanza Magnum Selección Especial has some smooth tannins and a long, complex finish.
