Description
1912 Paternina Blanco Brillante, Federico Paternina - Rioja Reserva - 1 Bottle (0.75L)
White wine - Spain

Wine bought to a retired wine distributor from Haro, La Rioja, in 2015.
Stored in private cellar up to today.

This is one of the oldest and rarest wines ever produced in Spain. Extremely rare. Not much more information is available.

It's supposed to be aged in cask from 1912 to mid 40's, about 30 years. It was produced only in the very best vintages during the first quarter of the 20th century by Federico Paternina winery in conjunction with Bodegas Franco-Españolas. The seal of Rioja was not printed in the label. It means that this bottle is a pre-Rioja wine: before the creation of the Regulatory Council Rioja and the Denomination of Origin region in 1925.

Only Paternina winery, Viña Tondonia and Marqués de Murrieta had experience and knowledge of how to produce such a long barrel-ageing wine inspired in the 19th-century Médoc wines. It can only be compared to very old Castillo Ygay Blanco Gran Reserva from the first quarter of the 20th century. A real jewel!!
