Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2010) - 93 pts

The 2010 Calvario is produced from 90% Tempranillo, 8% Garnacha and 2% Graciano from a vineyard in Briones, which names the wine, planted in 1945. The destemmed but uncrushed grapes fermented in a French oak vat for 14 days at a temperature of 28ºC, were transferred to new French oak barrels where malolactic fermentation was carried out and the wine matured for one and a half years being racked every six months. It has a very strong imprint from the soil, savory notes of meat broth (umami?), peat and a core of ripe, aromatic fruits, damsons, black cherries, blackberries and balsamic aromas. The palate displays sweet tannins and great acidity, very approachable and gentle, with great balance that would make the wine age gracefully. Drink 2014-2025.


James Suckling (2010) - 91 pts

eally ripe aromas of dark plum paste, chocolate panforte and currants. The palate has a deep-set, smooth core of fine, easygoing tannins delivering the same dark plums and chocolate that characterized the nose. Drink or hold
