92 Aticus 2004 Vendimia Seleccionada Red Wine

Our committee points out: Outstanding achievement with regards to the previous year. Its prominent juicy palate encourages its drinking.

Tasting: Of medium intensity on the nose, it is a modern wine in which the toasted hints from the cask prevail over the other aromas; backwards there is a bouquet of hot spices, rockrose, mineral hints such as graphite and seasoned fruit. Nice evolution through the mouth; its good backbone, acidity and very juicy tannins result in a pleasant bitterness. Outstanding ripe fruit flavours giving way to sweet gleams. Full of toasted aromas and a medium finish.

90 Aticus Crianza 2003

Our commitee points out: A modern, powerful Rioja wine. Good job for a difficult vintage. Tasting: Wine of medium intensity on the nose, with recollections of seasoned black fruit, aromatic herbs such as mint and eucalyptus, or dry flowers such as the ones used for infusions, together with leather and toasted hints from the cask. Nice evolution through the mouth, with a medium backbone, in which the toasted sensations of its ageing prevail. It presents a hint of acidity and slightly rustic tannins. Pleasant finish.
