Silence, time, calm and an excellent raw material combine themselves to create this great Rioja wine, a classic among classics that -following the way of its predecessor vintage, the 2005- is on its way to becoming another mythical vintage thanks to the freshness and the life it shows.

And it could not be otherwise: the demanding and delicate care of the vineyards, a scrupulous selection of the grapes, the aging in carefully selected barrels from the cooperage owned by Viña Tondonia - Bodegas R. López de Heredia... 141 years of history have let them acquire a know-how that few wineries can boast of and that is transmitted in the best way possible: the wine itself.

So choose the right time and place, open your senses, take a deep breath and pour yourself a glass of Viña Tondonia Reserva 2006. It'll look like time's stands still.

Leaf litter, silky, persistent. . . A classic among classics. Its long process of making and aging "taming" any edge. . .

4.5/5

Tondonia is one of my favorites!
The cellar Lopez de Heredia and their traditional vinification has amazed me. They are the only ones in Rioja who follow the old method (more than 100 years) and their wines are truly spectacular.
Colour: The ruby color glass middle layer and hues.
Nose: On the nose, smells fantastic,red fruit, complex and elegant as well as average intensity.
Taste: The mouth is soft and velvety. Feels like old leather, expressive wine, very balanced and long. It is lightweight and has a perfect acidity and a great presence in the mouth.
Another great wine from López de Heredia.!
