From one of Rioja's largest producers, this has the size, weight and pedigree of a Gran Reserva in a good vintage: It's ripe with touches of volatility in the plummy fruit, toughness in the baked earth of its tannins and a lasting savor of black fruit and minerality. This has the depth to age for several years. Best Buy.
The old Campo Viejo wine cellar, founded in 1967, has given way to the Juan Alcorta Bodega, named after its founder. Located in Logroño, on the old road to Fuenmayor, the bodega is built on a plateau planted with vines and has panoramic views of the Ebro Valley and the Sierra de Cantabria mountains. It is situated right in the heart of La Rioja, the most prestigious growing region in Spain.
