Bodegas Urbina Seleccion Crianza Rioja Tempranillo 1999

Add to wishlist

''Alluring, old-school style. Remarkably aromatic, opening up on the palate with nicely knit tannins, relevant fruitiness and a long finish. Impossible to believe it is 15 + years old. This is what Rioja can do!'' 94 Points, Decanter Magazine

''No, I didn’t make a mistake with the vintage. This is indeed a Crianza from 1999, made by one of the very best traditional producers from Tempranillo with 5% Graciano and Mazuelo. It’s a silky, mature, gamey, hedonistic style with lovely balance and the acidity of a cooler area.'' 93 Points, Tim Atkin, Special Rioja Report

Seleccion is remarkably aromatic. Concentrated and dark on the nose with berries, damsons, and figs, while on the palate there are notes of rich fruit cake and savory vanilla, with nicely knit tannins, relevant fruitiness and a long-lasting finish. Well-structured and mellow, one sip and you won’t believe it’s 20 years old! In the glass, this wine is a rich, dark red and has all the decadence and classic flavour drinkers love about a good red.
