Santalba Reserva 2011
Made with 100% Tempranillo grapes from a unique location in Rioja-Alta (482-505 m over the sea level), with a limited production of 18,130 bottles, you definitely should have a sip of this wine. Aged for 18 monts in American oaks barrels and a later rest in bottle for 2 years, earning in this way the title of RIOJA RESERVA.
In your eyes an intense bright cherry-red wine with lighter tawny hints will surprise you, with beautiful streams produced by glycerin. In your nose there will be a concentration of aromas of ripe black fruits, licorice, violets and vanilla on top of spices and toasted bread. In your mouth there is a powerful back-taste and a long pleasurable finish to this elegant wine. It will open up and improve for hours in the glass. Also a great wine to add to your cellar, with a great potential to age in the bottle.
As the winery owner says, this wine was aged with love to reach your palate in the that way.
