Altanza Gran Reserva Rioja 2015 96D, 93WE
Gran Reserva wines typically appear in above average vintages with the red wines requiring at least 5 years aging, a minimum of 2 years in oak and a minimum of 3 years in the bottle.
Our most classic wine, with excellent aging potential and the maximum expression of the queen variety in the Doca Rioja.
It goes well with all kinds of game, stews and strong cheeses, such as Torta del Casar. It also goes well with certain desserts that contain a bitter ingredient, such as dark chocolate. Suggestions: juicy, great-tasting meats such as beef chateaubriand

Bright cherry-red color. Great aromatic complexity due to its long ageing requirements. On the nose you find aromas of spices leading to a slight hint of leather with some smoky aromas. The influence of the oak is translated into notes of cocoa and coffee. The texture is powerful with enough acidity to tame it and balance it out. The tannis are smooth and the wine has a beautiful lingering finish. Super enjoyable! These guys do a fantastic job!
