Bodegas Altanza – Altanza Reserva Especial
Altanza Reserva Especial is an extraordinary and beautiful wine made from fifty-year-old vines, which gave this special wine a dark garnet red color with edges of ruby.
The winemaking and aging processes of the wine are for three months in 22,000 L Allier vats, twenty-four months in new French oak casks and at least a year in the bottle.
Wine drinkers find a perfect balance between the aromas of blackberry, liquorice and blackcurrant and its spicy cinnamon and cocoa notes; which made the wine popular in the market.

Michael is an online enthusiast, with a lot of knowledge about online marketing. Traveling around the world to hunt for the perfect wine. Latest on Sicily, where Etna has a huge impact on the taste, which is strong with a bitter aftertaste for the youngest wines, but older wines are fantastic. Drinking wine, and writing about them, are one the passions. Remember to drink responsibly 🙂
