Professional Wine Reviews for Altovinum Evodia 2014

Rated 90 by Stephen Tanzer
(aged for five months in stainless steel and concrete tanks): Brilliant ruby. Smoky, spice-accented blueberry and boysenberry aromas are complicated by suggestions of candied violet and white pepper. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering intense black and blue fruit flavors enlivened by juicy acidity. The floral note repeats emphatically on the long, gently tannic finish, which leaves allspice and blue fruit notes behind. These vines, many of which are reportedly more than a century old, are planted between 850 and 950 meters above sea level. The wine is a remarkable value as it offers the fruit intensity and floral complexity of many wines that cost easily two or three times the price. (Galloni)

Additional Information on Altovinum Evodia 2014

Winery: Altovinum

Varietal: Grenache

For many centuries now, vintners in the dry and arid regions of Europe have been growing the purple skinned fruits of the Grenache vines for use in a wide range of different wines. Their influence and popularity led to them being planted all over the New World in any region with the correct climatic conditions for them to thrive in, away from the damp or wet weather which causes this particular varietal to very easily rot. Grenache grapes are prized by many as a result of their spicy berry flavors, and the fact that they have a relatively high alcohol content in the bottle. This has led to them being often used as a blending grape, although single variety bottles are also common and make the most of their light body and interesting, rich flavors

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
