Bodegas Cornelio Dinastía, Imperial Autor, Rioja 2018
97 Points - Best In Show - €49.95
"The aesthetic evolution over the past few years in Spain's greatest wine region leaves its winemakers with more style alternatives than ever before - and fortunate drinkers with a range of these propitious soils and skies. The Rioja that won its way through Best In Show this year is perhaps best described as a 'new classic' - deeper and more primary in colour, scent and expressive force than the limpid, time-burnished classics of the past, yet at the same time packed with the classic Rioja virtues of gentle, brimmingly ripe fruits, warmth, glowing richness, supple tannins and understated but guiding acidity. It's absolutely accessible now, but a few years will help ease the force of the fruits to the benefit of further gentleness and still warmer glow."
Bodegas Cornelio Dinastía, Crianza, Rioja 2018
Gold - 95 Points - €29.95
"Freshness, elegance and restraint are the tripod of this youthful wine, which has debonair milk chocolate, spice and strawberry scents. Powerful yet graceful. Hard to resist, but try to keep a few bottles."
