Red wine - Logroño - La Rioja - Spain

Bottle size: Standard (0.75L)
Number of bottles: 3
Region: Rioja
Year: 1962

3 bottles of Excelso Gran Reserva, excellent state of preservation, perfect labels, sealed capsules
One of the great wines of La Rioja

Elaboration: 18 months of rest in large wooden tinos. Between 72 and 84 months (depending on the vintage) in American oak barrels of 225 liters. Filtered with fresh egg whites. A minimum of 10 years in a bottle rack before being sold. Special sealing to ensure greater longevity and hygiene of the cap. Marketed in 1983.

Tasting note: Ruby-colored marronous half-coat, slightly darker than wines of similar harvest, orange border, broad. Clean, bright, bright, without precipitates.

Initially in the nose is powerful and slightly reduced (vegetable notes, roasted pepper, mint). It rises with a suggestive range of finely balsamic and medicinal aromatic herbs: sage, rock tea, raw oregano, fenugreek. When you breathe, you add very elegant spices and smoky notes, almost to La Vera's paprika. The barrel is nothing intrusive, providing creamy and classic expressions of woodwork and noble woods. The whole is whole and sustained. It is gaining in potency for hours, revealing its varietal profile, with memories of withered flowers and very ripe red fruit.

In the mouth we are before a nervous wine and of sparkling acidity, of great quality. Much tannin, present but sculpted and round by age, with a strong concentration, and a sensation of saturation of the papillae that contrasts with the fully traditional style that it shows: vanilla, creamy toasted, spicy. It has a touch of sweetness of high quality that shows clearly that we are facing a wine already fully integrated. Very harmonious and pleasant to drink. I would not save it much longer. Now it is in a moment "Excelso". It shows personality and an own character that differentiates it from the rest of classic Rioja.

    The bottle arrived broken, the package was amateurish. The seller indicated he had shipped the bottle, but he waited 2 weeks longer, so he could collect the money. This seller brings problems, fraud!!

    Watch out for this seller! One bottle arrived leaking. He pretended this was due to the transport which is impossible. He promised to compensate, but he kept me putting of with false promises. Beware!
