Alberto Orte 2010 'La Antigua' Clasico Rioja Reserva DOCa Vinous Rating: 91 (2/21/2019)
(60% French and 40% American oak barrels) Deep red. Lively smoke- and spice-accented cherry and red berry aromas are complemented by floral oil, game and pipe tobacco flourishes. Seamless and focused on the palate, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter with air. Shows very good energy and suave floral character on a long, fruit-driven finish that's given shape by well-integrated tannins.
