FROM The man in the front seat / February 10, 2014
The search for the best red wine in Spain moves the Rioja region, probably the most famous in Spain, to try Viña Ardanza – Special Reserve. Rioja Alta, one of three sub divisions, is located around the town of Haro on the south of the Ebro river. Based on the Tempranillo with Garnacha grapes it is labelled “reserva especial” in good vintages, and till now only 3 (1964,1973 & 2001). Dark & fruity, great with meats and only €20-€23 a bottle, well worth a try.
