1981 Bodegas Olarra Cerro Anon Reserva Rioja

SKU #1292917

Winemaker Ezequiel "El Brujo" García (ex Cune in the 1960's and a portion of the 70's) described the Cerro Añon to me as being more masculine, a very old school Riojano way of referring to a wine as "Burgundian" (think: LdH Viña Bosconia, always in the Burgundy bottle). Accorindg to García, Cerro Añón always had a hefty chunk of Mazuelo and some Garnacha to brighten things up a bit.These bottles were part of a collection from a Spanish source we have purchased older Riojas from in the past. They arrived to us in early April, in good condition and ready to, ideally, recover a bit longer from their journey prior to being cracked open and enjoyed.

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
