Review

A fruit-forward wine, with an intense colour and good structure. A fine example of a Tempranillo from the Rioja Alta.

A cherry colour with a ruby rim, the wine is clean and bright in appearance. The complex nose exhibits aromas of ripe red fruit and toasty and spicy notes. It is smooth, fleshy and well-structured on the palate, culminating in a lengthy, aromatic finish.

Matured for 24 months in new and semi-new French and American oak barrels and subsequently, for another 12 months in bottle.

semplicemente fantastico

Uno dei miei preferiti da sempre. Alcorta non delude mai, questa riserva 2011 necessita di respirare molto, ma una volta ossigenato si apre ad uno sviluppo di profumi intensi e complessi. Al palato è armonico, avvolgente, giustamente tannico.
