Vineyard & Wine Region Information
Bodegas Altanza originally focussed solely on making Reserva wines. Over the last ten years they have gradually incorporated younger reds into their range, but their overriding objective remains to produce wines which are expressive and show a good balance between oaky and fruity notes. They have created a range of wines which can be enjoyed by both the sommelier and the modern consumer who enjoys of a good wine.
They age their Crianza predominantly in French-oak, with a very small amount in American casks. This combination of French and American oak creates a greater range of aromas and flavours in the wine than would be obtained from just one type of wood.
