Winemaker's Notes:

Cherry red with a pinkish rim, high to medium robe. Intense aroma, predominant ripe red berries with balsamic scents, coffee, vanilla and coconut notes. Well-balanced on the palate with a silky mouthfeel, pleasant acidity that highlights a fresh and long-lasting aftertaste.

ViƱa Alberdi is extraordinarily versatile for food pairing. It ideally complements snacks and appetizers, as well as rice dishes, pasta and casserole recipes. It also pairs well with barbecues and delicate grilled meat and fish.

About La Rioja Alta:

On the 10th of July 1890, five families shared their passion for wine and founded La Rioja Alta, S.A. That day was the start of an ongoing searching for excellence that their descendants still pursue nowadays. Since then we have managed to get the best from the marriage of our tradition in wine ageing and the state-of-the-art technology in grape fermentation. Nowadays we are an international reference of great Rioja wines. Our wines are the result of an exhaustive selection of our most exclusive grapes and a slow ageing process that provides them with elegance, complexity and sophistication. They are patiently settle in more than 30,000 American oak casks fashioned by our own coopers. We take great responsibility in making our wines using our own grapes. Wines with personality and wines with soul.
