Lealtanza, Gran Reserva 2011, DO RiojaRegular price €33.00
A Gran Reserva Rioja is a special treat, and this one comes from one of the outstanding Rioja vintages of the century.
The long ageing that qualifies this wine for the Gran Reserva label gives rise to complex and deep aromas from fruit to spice to smoke and leather. The oak influence carries through onto the palate, with rich, toasty breadth that takes in hints of coffee and dark chocolate around a core of fine, ripe Tempranillo fruit.92/100 International Wine Cellar (Stephen Tanzer)
