Viña Arana Reserva 2009 is a great leading wine with elegance, a true classic from Haro and a benchmark in Rioja. Rated by the Regulating Council as "Very Good", vintage 2009 is known for its outstanding aromatic intensity and a consistent, balanced palate. This features elegant tannins in which the Mazuelo -favoured particularly by the year's climate conditions - lends a degree of balance and extraordinary ripeness for this variety. This is a sure bet if you want to enjoy a very good Rioja wine.

The Winery

La Rioja Alta

La Rioja Alta

On July 10, 1890, five Basque and Rioja-based vine growers created "Sociedad Vinicola De La Rioja Alta" in what is known as the Haro Station District. This was the beginning of a fascinating business venture in which the only dream of the five founders was to craft and age high-quality wines.

4 /5

- The Vina Arana 2009 is a wine with that smooth, polished red colour typical of classic Riojas. Clean and bright in the glass, with light orange notes on the rim. Outstandingly intense nose, with light balsamic tertiary aromas of tobacco, caramel, incense and spices against a background of ripe fruit. Consistent and well-balanced in the mouth, with fine, elegant tannins. Very enjoyable, ample, elegant finish; mature and pleasant.
- Food pairing: First courses of rice or pasta dishes. Small game casseroles, char-grilled meat, etc.

4.5/5

If Viña Arana is synonymous with quality, this vintage, which has remained the best grapes (Rioja Alta not produce large reserve of 2006), it is a reference that can not miss on your wine cellar
