Altanza Reserva Especial is an extraordinary and beautiful wine made from 50-year-old vines, which gave this special wine a dark garnet red color with edges of ruby. Aromas of blackberry, liquorice, blackcurrant with hints of violet, graphite and tobacco. It is fruity, elegant and smooth with spicy cinnamon and cocoa characters on the finish. Best pair with red meats, game and strong-flavored cheeses.
