La Rioja Alta Vina Alberdi Reserva Tinto 2013
Viña Alberdi is characterised by a notable food-pairing versatility. It is an ideal companion to appetisers, snacks and barbecues, perfect with rice, pastas and stews, and great with lightly-grilled meat and fish.
100% Tempranillo from part of our Las Monjas, El Palo and Las Cuevas vineyards in Rodezno and Alto del Rey in Labastida. These vineyards are located at an altitude of 500-600 metres (1600-2000 ft) above sea level, planted more than 40 years ago in chalky-clay soils.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Showing good colour and concentration for a 2013 - a light, rain-affected vintage in which La Rioja Alta made neither 890 or 904 - this pure Tempranillo hails from Labastida and Rodezno. Fresh, scented and vanilla spicy, it's a bright, breezy, charming wine that will put smiles on faces. 2019-23. Alcohol: 13.5
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.
Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.
Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
