Bought from the cellars of Paternina winery in 2015.
Stored in private cellar up to today.

Extremely good storage conditions. Fully mature and therefore drinking well now, or cellar for 20 years.

Label printed with the stamp "First Centenary Paternina 1896-1996".

Vintage 1982 is unanimously considered as one the best vintage ever in Spain. It was exceptionally classified as "Excellent" by the Regulatory Council of Rioja. From 1964 to 1994 (30 harvests) no other vintage got this highest rating.

*** Shipment made with special wine box certified by UPS and DHL.
