Bodegas Ollauri Los Calados 2003

Rioja DOCa

Superb, 15 year old wine from one of Rioja’s most historical cellars, Bodegas Ollauri. Using grapes from 40 year old vines high up in the Rioja Alta, the wine long aged in barrel and bottle, it’s a wonderfully mellow, full flavoured and complex red.

Bodegas Ollauri has a winemaking history dating back centuries and underground cellars that snake for a kilometre below Ollauri village. In these tunnels are stored a fascinating library of older vintages. This is a rare opportunity to get your share of one. Just this year, Wine Advocate rated a 1970 Rioja from this estate at 95 points. It was in fine form with years ahead of it! All goes to prove that the ancient tunnels (los calados) provide the ideal conditions for long ageing the wines. The grapes are also key – for this red they were picked from 40 year old bush vines high up in the Alta, so flavour is exceptionally concentrated. In fact, the grapes used to supply Paternina – legends of Rioja. Ideal with game or mushroom risotto.
