Wine Azpilicueta Reserva 2014
Paraphrasing the words of Elena Adell, the winemaker at Bodegas Azpilicueta, we'd say the Azpilicueta Reserva results from a definite intention: to produce a wine which clearly indicates the characteristics of the vintage, based on traditional varieties.
This is a wine with a strong personality, an elegant palate and balanced body, which is made in the classic Rioja style founded on Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo. The grapes, rigorously selected, come from Fuenmayor, a vineyard enjoying a varied topography with a combination of soils and orientations, adding an extraordinary complexity to the wines.
It appears a lovely ruby colour with brick-red flecks, and exhibits evocative scents of vanilla, dried fruits and nuts, and wild berries. It's silky and delicate on the palate, with an intense, fine nuance, brought about by a lengthy refinement in bottle. Always among the Rioja's best-rated Reservas and with a great price-pleasure relationship.

Needs the right food pairing
A straightforward Rioja without huge amounts of character. I love vanilla, oak and a flavour which develops over time but found this a little simple for my tastes. It may also be the 100% tempranillo which lacks some of the subtlety of the blended varieties. That said, it paired quite well with a spicy pasta dish. A reasonably decent wine though for me it wasn't spectacular.by: Erkki (31/07/2018) - Vintage 2014
Nice and reliable table red wine
This tempranillo wine is a quality product. It has a versatile full flavor, which is relatively strong in positive meening. the aftertaste is pleasant. It suits best with spicy food and strong salads. This Reserva wine also offers reasons to discuss about its' flavor and surely nice experiences with this wine will continue.by: Graf (16/10/2017) - Vintage 2012
Der Azpilicueta 2012 von Campo Viejo ist trotz "Reserva" eher kurz im Nachklang. Geschmacklich ansprechend, aber man darf (auch bei dem Preis) nicht zu viel erwarten. Aber sehr gut "alltagstauglich".by: VRIGNAUD Tony (27/10/2020) - Vintage 2015
Un rioja élégant et équilibré
Un rioja élégant et équilibré. Des arômes agréables de vanille et coing. Laisser décanter avant de servir. J'aime avec un bon fromage bleu ou un ragoût de porc à l'orange et aux piments.by: Jesus Torres (23/12/2017) - Vintage 2013
lo abrimos para una cena con los amigos y nos dejó en muy buen lugar por lo fácil de beber acompañando una carne que estaba también deliciosa. Sin duda recomiendo este caldo
