July 2018. Príncipe de Viana Edición Rosa has received 91 points from Spanish wine Akatavino guide, compiled by renowned sommelier Antonio Jesús Pérez Reina.
“Congratulations for the score and for making wines that express your terroir and personality in each and every glass”, the wine expert wrote to the Navarre cellar and advised the readers of the guide:
“You deserve a bite of freshness among floral aromas. A wine from a single vineyard and a single grape variety. A success of Bodegas Príncipe de Viana because it offers a wine with an excellent presentation and a very lively content, fresh, full of hints of red fruits and a floral perfume, with rich, sharp, outstanding acidity which adds freshness and balsamic citrus aromas that accompany every sip. A Spring and Summer wine which can be enjoyed at a great price. Drink now and until 2020”.
This wine is only possible because Príncipe de Viana Edición Rosa comes from a single vineyard of Garnacha Tinta managed for over a decade to produce rosé wines. Its grapes are harvested by hand and at night in order to avoid aromatic losses and maintain Bodegas Príncipe de Viana’s high quality standards.
The web platform made up by Guía Akatavino, the magazine of similar name, as well as CIVAS Sommeliers of Spain wine contest, organized by Pérez Reina and his team, is considered and certified by global standard companies as Top 1 of web platforms on wine in Spanish language.
