This 2010 Rioja Reserva is tasting quite well currently. Aged for 24 months in French oak and released in 2017, the wine has aged gracefully.  Founded in 2004 by famed winemaker Miguel Ángel de Gregorio in the heart of Rioja Alta, Finca Nueva leads the new wave of Riojan wines that adhere to Rioja’s traditional aging and classification system, but are more fresh, fun and enjoyable on the palate than their conventional ‘old-world’ Riojan counterparts. Wines are made solely from varieties indigenous to Rioja, a region known as one of Spain’s oldest and most famous grape growing region. Vines are planted in close proximity to the banks of the Ebro River, farmed sustainably and harvested by hand. The region’s diverse terroir and varying elevations provide complex, consumer-friendly wines that are produced by f one of Europe’s most celebrated winemakers, who routinely garners high honors for the wines he makes at his newest estate, or “Finca Nueva”.

Wine Notes

“The 2010 Reserva is a varietal Tempranillo aged for two years in French oak barrels. 2010 was a very balanced vintage and the wine has reached a level of complexity and depth I had never seen before in this range. There are balsamic aromas on incense and cigar box, intermixed with ripe black cherries and a touch of liqueur, making it quite heady and hedonistic. The palate is polished and sleek, with polished, elegant tannins and very balanced acidity. It feels compact and solid. 60,000 bottles produced. Finca Nueva are now in their new place in Navarette, the old Breton winery, and the last two vintages, 2014 and 2015, have been fermented there. Since they moved there, they have started using some more American oak barrels, which are combined with the usual French barriques they inherited from Finca Allende, its sister project.”  The Wine Advocate 14% Alc.
