Full marks! A magnificent Rioja, especially at this price. It is by all accounts the best wine I've tried that's under €30! It develops in a complex way both in grape variety, maturation and its evolution. On the palate, it has a great nobility of character. Basically, give it a try!more reviews

"An exceptional vintage, expressive, aromatic and elegant (...) a great energy and a beautiful tannic grain (...) An unusual balance in the length" R. Parker
This great wine stands out thanks to its long ageing in oak barrels used for several wines (to not mark the wine too much): 36 months for the Tempranillo, 30 months for the Garnacha. The wines are then blended in barrels and bottled only in 2015. Vinatis offer the opportunity to try a wine already weathered by several years of ageing in the bottle. This is a rare chance in the life of a wine lover since they have never left Bodega since bottling. The bouquet reveals a great intensity of red and black fruits that are very fresh and of great complexity. The density on the palate wins us over with its power velvet and perfect balance between fruity and delicate woody aromas. The finish is successfully fresh on an incredible length with hints of truffles and undergrowth due to ageing in the bottle. Here is a rare bottle that should not be missed.

After the first sip, my friends were silent, visibly stunned. They asked me the price and they wouldn't believe me. We really enjoyed this wine together, powerful and fruity at the finish. A super Rioja - as I write this, there are 6 bottles in my basket. At this price it is a dream come true!

A very beautiful discovery!!! It's a first-rate Spanish wine and I have to say that it has been a long time since I've been so bowled over by a wine. Perfect balance between fruit and oak.

Vina Ardanza never disappoint. The 2010 Reserva Seleccion was fabulous, but this is also tremendous value for money. Still relatively young so tertiary notes are still in the back seat. There's cherry and other red fruit, spices like cloves and star anise, and cedar and vanilla. Excellent wine.

A wine that is already very open and expressive with a richness that does not hide the freshness brought by a chiselled tension and melted tannins. A wine bursting with sunshine, a pure pleasure

I wanted to try this highly rated Rioja and I have mixed feelings about it. I can feel the fruit and the woody side, but I find it a rather flat wine that lacks power in my opinion.

I opened a bottle with some people familiar with Rioja. We were disappointed by the wine's lack of power and sparse nose. Quite lean with red meat. Better with cheese.

A magnificent wine. Powerful but equally well crafted. I tasted this in Spain in 2004. I wanted to try it again and even a few years later I was still very pleased. Marvellous product.

Disappointed. This wine seems a bit faded. Poor value for money!!! Vintage Rioja is much better.
Waiting for another tasting.
