Decanter Magazine Top Three Riojas - Urbina Selección 1999


Decanter Magazine March 2015

“Pedro Benito Urbina, Selección Crianza 1999: it was delightful to taste this mature traditional style – the oldest wine in the tasting. Light-bodied with moderate alcohol and a silky palate; tobacco oak adds a savory note. Long and delicately Balanced. This is what Rioja can do! 18.5/20 (95/100) Drink 2015-2025” Sarah Jane Evans (Master of Wine)
