“Only at the start of a glorious life” Jancis Robinson MW
We are delighted to announce the release of limited edition. Double Magnums (300cl) of Viña Ardanza Seleccion Especial.
The 2010 vintage, which first entered the market in autumn 2019, has received astonishing critical acclaim with 95 points from the Wine Advocate, 96 points from James Suckling, and most recently 18+ from Jancis Robinson MW. Ardanza is a wine that consistently offers some of the finest value, and this has never been more true than with the 2010 vintage. In bottle size the Seleccion Especial is predicted to age for two or more decades, so this large format has a very long life ahead of it.
2010 Viña Ardanza Reserva Selección Especial, La Rioja Alta

95 Points, Luis Gutiérrez - The Wine Advocate
"The wine is expressive, aromatic, very elegant and clean, with classical Rioja aromas of long aging in barrel and slow oxidation through the years in wood. The palate is polished and sleek but shows plenty of energy, with very fine, mostly resolved tannins and very good harmony and persistence. There is great complexity, and you could start smelling spice and smoke to move to earthy tones, hints of beef blood, cherries in liqueur, curry, diesel, old furniture and forest floor. A great Viña Ardanza!”
