Diamante is a Spanish gem. Probably a proof that good taste need not always be expensive. Robert Parker's "The Wine Advocate" gave this wine 86 points, sharing with this the Beverage Tasting Institute's opinion. Wine Enthusiast gave 85 points and at the 'Sélecions Mondiales' in Canada Diamante won bronze. And did we mention that there is no other Spanish white wine in the Rioja with higher sales numbers in Spain? But also in Mexico, this Diamante is the number 1 of all the white wines above $7.
