Altanza Edulis Reserva Rioja 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine: "Long oaked wine. 18 months in French oak casks which are 1 or 2 years old and 3 months extra in Allier French oak vats. 15 months in the bottle. Garnet red with ruby glints. Complex, explosive nose of blackberries, spices and tobacco well blended with quality French oak. Intense aromas, fruity. Silky, fleshy, a classic Reserva at its best presented in an innovative way by its fruitness on palate. Elegant, complex flavours and a good structure. Very food-friendly. It demands more elaborated meals, and stronger meats. It pairs with anything that has dried fruits, spices like vanilla, cinnamon, cloves or nutmeg." - Winery Edulis: "Named after the Boletus Edulis, (an edible and choice fungus) this project emerges with our idea that a set of local conditions in which a particular wine or family of wines is produced, including soil-type, weather conditions, topography and wine-making savoir-faire provides us with wines full of personality." "Edulis are straight Tempranillo wines exclusively produced with our own grapes, coming from our own estate of 320 Hectares, in which we apply the best techniques and take special care to grow quality Tempranillo grapes, with a touch of freshness that make us enjoy lively wines." - Winery

Bodegas Altanza -located in Fuenmayor, at the heart of Upper Rioja- is surrounded by tempranillo vineyards. It is thus sited in one of the most fertile and privileged lands of the Denomination/ Apellation of Origin Rioja. The winery –its premises and gardens– is conceived, designed and built with the same heart as is put into its winemaking. We have used the noblest materials for its construction, striving always to blend tradition and modernity. This philosophy is easily noticed as soon as one takes a glance at the exterior appearance, but also at the beauty and functionality of the interiors –even the wines show a balance between oak and fruit.
