Reviews & Scores

The entry-level 2011 Vina Alberdi is a blend of Tempranillo from different vineyards with a classical fermentation. The grapes are destemmed and crushed in stainless steel followed by malolactic and aging in new and used American oak barrels for two years.

They have introduced some changes in the vinification, and since 2010 the grapes have been sourced 100% from their own vineyards. With time, more balsamic notes appear. The palate is medium­bodied with tasty flavors, dusty tannins and moderate acidity. 500,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2014.
