The most expensive and rarest wine produced in Rioja. Bought from the cellars of Paternina winery in 2009. Stored in Original Wooden Case (check out pictures). Extremely good storage conditions. Fully mature and therefore well now, or cellar for 20-25 years.

Bottle size: Bottle (0.75L)
Number of bottles: 2
Region: Rioja
Year: 1968

Bought in Paternina winery in May 2009.
Stored in private cellar up to today.

A limited edition of 8.250 bottles. Vinified for 12 months in big wooden vats, from the founding time of the winery, without temperature control, and then poured to cask. Aged for 84 months, 7 years. Racked 14 times, once every 6 months, using the traditional cask-to-cask method. Marketed by purchase order directly from the cellars.

"Conde de los Andes was the most expensive wine in Rioja: 14.000 pesetas in 1982 (about 84 euros), four times more expensive than Viña Tondonia 1970 Gran Reserva, double than 890 Gran Reserva La Rioja Alta or Castillo Ygay, and just a little bit less than Vega Sicilia Único. This wine was so expensive for Spanish people that it was hardly ever on sale in Spain itself".

94/100 Cellartracker: "A gift from a friend of the origin country, a spectacluar bottle, high fill, some problems with the cork, but then if you take a first nose........., a little bit of biscuits, spices like cardamon, still some little red fruit left, on the palate first of all very lively acidic appearance, fine, no very fine, hints of vanilla, tobacco, red berries, did not put this bottle in a decanter, you never know with old bottles, this one kept tension till the final mouthful, very long+, in well stored conditions still some life ahead, stunning bottle".

** Bottles will be shipped without their original wooden case to prevent damage.
*** Shipment made with special wine box certified by UPS and DHL.
