Trying to continue in the line of marriage between the world of wine and art, Bodegas Altanza launches the fourth installment of the Lealtanza Artistas Españoles vintage 2008 collection, a limited production collection. Works by the painter Joan Miró are shown on the 2001 labels, 2004 is reflected with paintings by Salvador Dalí and 2005, another excellent vintage, pays homage to the architect Antoni Gaudí. This time it is the turn of the forerunner of the pictorial avant-gardes of the 20th century , Francisco Goya.
Lealtanza Reserva – Goya 2008 edition is a wine that presents not only the characteristics of a Lealtanza, a Rioja, a Spanish wine, but also comes with an emotional, metaphorical baggage that establishes links between two worlds that are already connected in one way or another. : wine and art
Relating wine to art is complex, but there are many parallels: an artist belongs to a school, has a style and marks an era; the wine has a Denomination of Origin that is like the school to which the artist belongs; the hallmark and character is the winery and the philosophy that is applied in winemaking in the same way as the artist marks when creating his work.
Although it has only been on the market for a short time, Lealtanza Reserva Goya 2008 is firmly on the mark, marking its presence in international wine magazines.

Expressing the sensations that surround us when we enjoy this wine is difficult. Just seeing it fall into the glass leaves us engrossed, exhibiting an intense cherry color. On the nose it is strong, maintains a lively freshness and vitality, with aromas of fine reduction. On the palate it is even better, elegant, persistent and retaining its tonicity.
Plain and simple a work of art!
