2001 Rioja Reserva, Contino, Rioja

2001 Contino has a sumptuous, exciting quality. It is intense – it fixes the taster between the eyes – and delivers a realm of flavours. The nose is complex, offering ripe fruit and tobacco spice, but it is the poise, the weight in the glass, the air of liquid excitement which stay in the memory. These qualities alone assure the wine of star quality: add to this a classic, dramatic entry and a potent finish and we are looking at a great Contino in its infancy.
