The Viña Ardanza Reserva is a red wine made by La Rioja Alta from the region of Rioja based on tempranillo and garnacha. The Viña Ardanza Reserva is the ideal red to combine with jamon iberico and hard cheese.
“We had it with a bean stew and it was a fantastic combination (although I hadn't thought it at the beginning). Fine! We enjoyed it.
Very dark Bordeaux colour. Smells a lot of oak. I enjoyed it quite long after the last sip.”
“Red ruby colour with reddish brown tinges. You can notice that the Viña Ardanza Reserva smells of red fruits. Good flavour, with hints of caramel.
A accompanying us from starters to dessert.
I drank with my brothers.”
