Marques de Arienzo Rioja Reserva 2001 DOCa
3rd bottle if this wine tasted. As mentioned in July 2014 there is really nothing to add to my June 2014 tasting. I was looking for some nice Old World style wine as I am quite overpowered with the intensity of the New World wines and that was superb choice, perfect bottle maturity, fruit already transformed into proper canned form accompanied by leather, earth, spices. One of the treasure from my cellar recently discovered upon organizing it. Now I understand the hobby of storing old old world wines, this would be very exceptionally replicated with the new world wines (yes there are some exceptions, I know).
