The first major release from La Rioja Alta's 2010 vintage. La Rioja Alta are without a doubt one of the finest wineries in the region, if not Europe. It has been rated 95 points from James Suckling and actually features number 31 in his top Spanish wines of the year.
Glancing through some of the names which this wine beats into such a place, they would set you back as much per bottle as this does per case! 2010 is Wine Advocate’s highest rated Rioja vintage to date, it is rated ‘Excellent’ by the Rioja Consejo Regulador, Decanter has called it “an excellent vintage” and Tim Atkin ranks it as a 5 star vintage. 2010 vintage is up there with the likes of 2005, 2004 and 2001. In a similar run to Bordeaux, they offer classic expressions of the region with impeccable purity, ripeness and structure.
The Vina Alberdi is produced from 100% Tempranillo, all farmed on estate-owned vineyards – a rarity in the region – and spends 2 years in American oak produced at the winery's own cooperage. They have control from grape to glass and with Rioja Alta’s unwavering dedication to producing astounding Rioja, this promises to be spectacular value.

Ripe and intense aromas of strawberries and blackberries with hints of black ink. Savory notes, too. Full-bodied, chewy and focused with linear fruit and character. Very finely crafted. Drink or hold. Dec 2016, www.jamessuckling.com
