La Rioja Alta Vina Ardanza
Reserva Especial 2001
Established in 1890, La Rioja Alta is one of the foundation stones of Rioja’s reputation as one of the great wines of the world. We are pleased to offer the opportunity to pre-order the remarkable Reserva Especial from the exceptional 2001 vintage.
“La Rioja Alta, thought so highly of this wine that it called it Reserva Especial, only the third time one of its wines has earned that designation, along with 1964 and 1973.”
The last available stock of the Vina Ardanza will be arriving in the city at the end of May.
“The current release is the 2001 Reserva Especial, a deeply colored wine with a lovely perfume of cinnamon, lavender, incense, balsamic, and black cherry. Medium-bodied, velvety-textured, and already complex, it will continue to evolve for another 5-10 years and offer a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2036. For those seeking immediate gratification, it has the virtue of being approachable now.”
-The Wine Advocate
Due to high praise, sterling reputation and superb quality, we do not expect the Vina Ardanza to be available for long.
