The first thing you will notice is how aromatic the wine is with dark fruity notes that stand out over the wood ones. Notes of blackberries and plums alongside spiced notes, dill, and vanilla that were obtained during its time in oak barrels. The wine has a great structure, body, and balance perhaps due to the long aging. The texture of the wine is uniquely velvety on the palate (due to cement fermentation?) with a pleasant long-lasting finish. 100% Tempranillo from vines planted in 1995.

Bodegas Marques de Arviza is a traditional family winery and the second oldest producing wines in La Rioja. The bodegas date back to 1874 and are built over sixteenth and seventeenth-century “calados” (underground cellars) that are still used today!

Marques de Arviza Seleccion Especial receives this name due to the double selection process by which the grapes are subjected. One selection at the vineyard and a second on a sorting table at the winery. The fruits come from low-production, organically farmed vineyards located at 620 m high. The grapes are pressed in concrete vats that date to 1874, which perfectly keep a suitable temperature for the entire alcoholic and malolactic fermentation process. The wine is then aged for 18 months in French oak barrels and then another six months in bottle.

This is a terrific everyday drinker at $12.97 a bottle. The wine drinks well now and will continue to do so for the next five years easily. Fans of Vina Alberdi are going to love this!
