Expert Reviews

The 2009 Capitosa spent 8 months in barrel. Earthy minerals, toast, Asian spices, black cherry, and blackberry aromas inform the nose of a sweetly-fruited, forward, easy-to-understand, savory Rioja that is an excellent value that will drink well through 2017. It affords a preview of the top cuvees of the outstanding 2009 vintage. Rating 88 - Drink to 2017 Jay Miller, Wine Advocate (JUN/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes


Intense garnet red with purple and violet glints. Clean and brilliant. Medium intensity of colour.


Fresh fruits with an elegant touch from the French oak casks. It is a very fruity wine that evokes the Tempranillo variety in aromas like red fruit, blackberry, blackberry bush, redcurrant and notes of liquorice.


Fresh, young, intense and nice. Well structured acidity with red fruits. Expressive and very well balanced.

Food Matching

This wine can be paired with the most casual food because it has enough body for any kind of meat, but it is also subtle for smoother meals. It combines with any pasta, salad and vegetables, as well as starters and meat in general.

Serving temperature 14-15 Cº

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Bodegas Altanza is a contemporary Spanish winery with a passion for Rioja’s native grape variety – Tempranillo. Located in Fuenmayor, in the heart of Rioja Alta, Bodegas Altanza controls over 120 hectares of gnarly, dry grown bush vines. Yields are low with these little gems producing an average of less than 1.5kg per vine, well below the Appelation limit in Rioja.

A state of the art winery completes the winemaking process. Lead by third generation Riojan winemaker Oscar Martinez, all Bodegas Altanza wines are made in a modern style: they are 100 per cent Tempranillo, fermented using natural yeasts and aged in entirely French oak.
