ALTANZA SOROLLA RESERVA 2010, TOP 9 RED RIOJA RESERVA BY TIM ATKIN.
The acclaimed Master of Wine, journalist and wine expert, Tim Atkin, has been recently published his last report about Rioja, after tasting more than 1.200 wines from 266 wine producers: “the most brilliant and exciting one in Rioja until now”.
“Rioja 2021 Special Report” enhances our “LeAltanza Sorolla Reserva 2010” as one of the TOP 9 Red Rioja Reservas, with special notes like “floral, graceful, delicate and complex, with fine-boned tannins, fresh acidity and layers of sweet aromatic spices and savoury red berry fruit. Very impressive indeed” Tim Atkin said.
The main features of this special wine are the deep garnet red with scarlet glints, the complex bouquet, where the fruity notes blend harmoniously with the spicy nuances as vanilla, balsamic and mineral notes. Long, sweet, nice and silky, it reminds to balsamic and toasted.
That´s why we call Sorolla as “a wine with a lot of light”, because its like the style of its label painter, Joaquín Sorolla, “The painter of light” through many Mediterranean landscapes, in particular “Walk on the Beach” (1909), “Swimmers” (1919) and “Gardens at the Sorolla Family House” (1919), the 3 selected labels for our Spanish Artist Collection.
