Spanish reds deliver such amazing bang for buck - the Anciano label has been doing it year after year and here they are yet again with this stunning 10 year tempranillo.
The tempranillo grape is the specialty from this part of the wine world. Produced from 30 year old vines in the Valdepenas region smack bang in the heart of Spain.
This is a big seller and a classy little number for the price. Rarely does a wine with this much age in such fine condition come onto the market at this kind of price.
This wine over delivers for the extremely modest price tag because it has been aged for seven years prior to release, which makes it a stunning bargain in terms of ripe fruit, secondary characters from its long ageing time (Gran Reservas need only be aged for five years, by law) and its potential to develop for a couple more years, in bottle.
A perfectly aged European red. Enjoy this medium bodied red with delicious savoury red fruit flavours and smooth tannins.
Dry, savoury and complex.
