Critical Acclaim: 96 pts James Suckling, 94 pts Vinous, 93 pts Decanter, and 91 pts Wine Spectator.
Winemaker Tasting Notes: Garnet red, medium-high depth, with an elegant palette. The nose stands out for its power, a highly-complex blend of spicy and balsamic aromas of sweet liquorice, patisserie, vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa, coffee and nutmeg, and notes of stewed red fruits. Outstanding balance, pleasant freshness and great structure in the mouth, with supple, round tannins. Very pleasant mouthfeel. An ample aftertaste of spicy notes, sweet liquorice and ripe fruit makes Viña Ardanza 2015 a timeless wine, with tremendous laying-down potential and one of the best vintages of the XXI.
Serving Suggestion: Pair with main courses, all kinds of meats, stews and desserts with chocolate toppings. Ideal as an after-dinner drink.
Varietal: 80% Tempranillo and 20% Grenache.
