"Twenty quid doesn't usually go far in the world of fine wine, but one of the world's finest Riojas can be bought for exactly that price. Viña Ardanza Reserva from La Rioja Alta is no secret, and its reputation preceeds it, yet its price remains entirely affordable - especially compared with equivalent-scoring reds from Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Rhone. It is an exceptional wine from Rioja's best traditional producer, La Rioja Alta.18/20 - Jancis Robinson MW.

My fiancée and I bonded over our shared love of Rioja, so when Valentine's Day comes around we always reach for something like this Reserva from La Rioja Alta. Rich and complex, with lovely warming oak. - Nick Gorton, OWC
