92/100 points for our wine ZINIO Seleccion de Suelos 2011
In order to craft this wine we make use of only the best grapes from our best plots from our best soils. Andreas Larsson, best Sommelier of the World 2007 does blind tasting for all the wines, and rates the quality, with no previous judgment. We are proud of it! And you, have you tasted it?
2011 was a very dry year, only 345mm rainfall throughout the year. Hence, plants went through great hydric stress. July was a cold month but August and September were particularly hot, thus producing an early harvest. We are rendered with a historic Riojan vintage, featuring wines marked by high concentration and structure.
It is a deep cherry‐red wine ‐ fine on the palate and providing a velvety finish. It features nuances of coffee beans and toffee, well‐balanced by ripe fruit; also reminiscent of prunes, blackberry and sweet spices. A very complex wine with potential and good bottle aging till its final
An ideal accompaniment to special occasions and great company!
