Winemaker Notes

Lively, medium garnet red with an intense pink rim. The nose stands out with intense, fresh aromas of ripe red fruit, wild strawberries, currants and raspberries against a balsamic background with notes of vanilla, toasted caramel, bakery, coffee and sweet mints. The palate is aromatic with good structure and balance and soft, amiable tannins. The aromatic harmony persists on the finish, with marked freshness and balance.

Viña Alberdi is characterized by a notable food-pairing versatility. It is an ideal companion to appetizers, snacks and barbecues, perfect with rice, pastas and stews, and great with lightly-grilled meat and fish.

James Suckling
This is a very classic Rioja with dried fruit and hints of vanilla. Lots of plums and red fruit. Full-bodied, round and juicy. Exotic and beautiful. Very pretty 2012.

The “entry point” Rioja in the winery’s impressive range is a pure Tempranillo, sourced from Rodezno and Labastida. Showing freshness in a warm year - Julio Saenz removed grapes with low acidity - it’s fresh, smooth and sweetly oaked, with classic spice and fresh tobacco notes and silky red fruits. 2018-23. Alcohol: 13.7%

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Cropped from an extremely dry year, the 2012 Viña Alberdi was saved by some rains in late September. The aging lasted two years, the first one in new American oak barrels and the second in used ones. It felt livelier than the 2011. This 2012 has some aromas of raw meat, with marked toast from the American oak (all the American oak barrels are built by their own coopers), with a good combination of fruit and spice, tradition and modernity. It's approachable and easy to drink, but a little more time in bottle should polish it even further.

La Rioja Alta Winery Video

Always evolving quality, elegance, innovation, evolution... They are the pillars on which the five founding families erected our winery in 1890 and built a way of living, feeling and producing wines of the highest quality that continue to evolve subtly, perfectly adapting to new tastes. This is how the permanent pursuit of excellence started; a pursuit that continues into the 21st century with identical enthusiasm. We draw the best from our winemaking tradition and wisdom —our own cooperage, manual racking, long ageing periods, etc.— and combine it with the most modern winemaking technology. Today, our wines are an international exemplar of the great wines of Rioja and our brands are present in the best restaurants across all continents.
