    Description

    Bodegas Altanza Rioja 2001
    Lealtanza Reserva Miro
    2scl, 2tl, 4ocb
    Bottle (12)


    "The 2001 Altanza Reserva Miro is brilliantly made. It has a gorgeous Miro painting reproduced on the label attached to the extra heavy custom-made glass bottle. Reportedly, the Martinez family paid $80,000 to the Miro estate for the rights to the artwork. Remarkably, the wine stands up to the art with no problem. The super-spicy, toasty, espresso roast, chocolate and blackberry aromas lead to a seamless, layered, rich wine that admirably combines elegance with power. It is a tour de force in Rioja winemaking. Cellar this beauty for 5 years and drink it over the following 15+." (95 pts. Jay Miller, Wine Advocate #169, Feb. 2007)


    Estimate: $600 - $800.
