Bodegas Altanza once again combines art and wine in its fifth installment of the Lealtanza Artistas Españoles collection
For yet another year, the Fuenmayor winery has once again valued Spanish talent over the centuries. And it does so through its main showcase, the labels of one of its most valued wines, Rioja Reserva 2010.
The Lealtanza Artistas Españoles – Reserva 2010 collection, which is already on sale, is a limited production collection (14,000 cases) and entirely dedicated to Joaquín Sorolla, “the painter of light” who put the techniques of impressionism at the service of the landscape Mediterranean.
Specifically, the labels reproduce three of the most representative paintings by the Valencian artist: “Walk on the shores of the sea” (1909), “Nadadores” (1919) and “Jardín de la casa Sorolla” (1919).
Bodegas Altanza thus pays its particular tribute to Sorolla as it did in previous editions with Miró, Dalí, Gaudí and Goya. Bet again on art and the opportunity to “combine the pleasure of all the senses in the same bottle of wine.”
The Riojan winery ensures that “they try to be closer and closer to their customers and better understand their tastes,” he also underlines from his 2010 Reserve that “it is above all the wine of the demanding, the intrepid and the romantics.”
Its main characteristics include “its intense cherry color, an intense garnet with scarlet edges (middle layer). On the nose it is strong, maintains a lively freshness and vitality, with aromas of balsamic, lactic, mineral notes and black berries. Its 18 months of aging in new French oak barrels make the wine present very elegant toasts, fine vanilla and spicy memories. Finally, on the palate it is silky, persistent and retains its tonicity ”.
For Bodegas Altanza it is “a broth that brings joy and turns a daily activity into something totally special.” And as of today, thanks to Sorolla, it is also “a wine with a lot of light.”
