Wine bought directly in Bodegas Riojanas in 2012.
Stored in private cellar up to today.
Wine never placed on the market. A very rare limited-edition vinified for the Centenary of the winery in 1990. Bottles were only given to loyal customers and company commitments. Packed in wooden case and wrapped in the original old Bodegas Riojanas white paper.
All bottles were brought from the old cellars of Riojanas winery, in Cenicero village, La Rioja. Bottles are in outstanding conditions: very good filling level, corks, colour, capsules, labels, no leakage. Wine aged in cask from 1971 and hand-bottled in 1990. Then, it was stored in the old racks of Bodegas Riojanas. Fully mature and therefore drinking well now, or cellar for next 20-25 years.
Initially, it was planned to be bottled as a regular Reserva in 1976. The finest casks were chosen by tasting in the first years of "crianza" and reserved separately from the rest. These barrels were aged for a longer period and finally bottled in 1990 to commemorate the First Centenary of Bodegas Riojanas (1890-1990). Vinified and matured in a wooden vat for 12 to 18 months, as the wines of the 19th century, and then poured to cask. Racked once every 6 months, in the first 10 years, using the traditional Riojan cask-to-cask method. Hand bottling directly from the barrel, bottle a bottle. Not filtered.
