Reserva Rioja Alta 2016

Santalba, the bodega´s name, is a fusion of the first name and surname of its owner and founder: Santiago Ijalba. With its experience accumulated since 1964 in the elaboration and breeding of great Rioja wines, Santiago Ijalba decided to launch his own personal project, Bodegas Santalba. Since then the Bodega has maintained an absolutely familiar character and has the support of her children, Roberto and Laura Ijalba Pérez, which combines the wine tradition of the family to which it belongs, with an international wine education. This range of wines pays homage to our past generations and the Patron Saint of Haro, San Felices . Every June 29th, on the cliffs of Bilibio where the Hermitage is, take place a famous Battle of Wine. Intense bright cherry-red wine with lighter tawny hints. There is a concentration of aromas of ripe fruit and vanilla on top of spices and toasted bread. Balanced in the mouth, there is a powerful backtaste and a long pleasurable finish to this elegant wine. It will open up and improve for hours in the glass. Great potential in the bottle.
