Details

The Vina Tondonia Reserva is a Rioja that will take you back 100 years. This family owned house continues to make wines exactly the way the founder did and they have stood the test of time.

From a famed single vineyard, Tondonia exhibits more structure and mineral character than its richer, fruitier sibling Bosconia. We have been fans for several decades of the their wines, but it's been great to see their popularity surge over the last several years. They make ageless wines that are superb.

"This wine spends six years in barrique (tradtionally it needed six winters to stabilize naturally), before racking into large casks and then bottling three years before the expected release. Attractive, dark earth and dried sage with a strong aroma of attractive, rich dried cherries, as well as blackberries and hints of cedar, cigar tobacco and fresh leather. The palate has a smooth array of fine but quite powerful tannin that builds seamlessly into the long, rich, dark cherry-flavored finish. Great wine! Drink or hold." 95 points James Suckling

"Following the appreciation of the 2007 vintage from Maria Jose Lopez de Heredia, the red 2007 Vina Tondonia Reserva is showing great, revealing unusual finesse and elegance. The nose is a little reticent but nuanced and complex, a little shy rather than explosive. The palate is medium-bodied, and the tannins are very refined. This has to be one of the finest vintages of Vina Tondonia Reserva of recent years. 200,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2015." 96 points The Wine Advocate
