PRESS

Rating by The Wine Advocate

90 Points - Wine Advocate, Issue # 195, June 2011
“Even better is the 2001 Gran Reserva (from a superior vintage). Deeper in color than the 2003 [Aged 7 Years] and
with greater complexity both aromatically and on the palate, this outstanding value will provide pleasure for both mind
and body over the next 6 - 8 years.”

VALDEPENAS D.O. - AGING REQUIREMENTS
