Review to the wine Oscar Tobía Reserva 2011 by Bodegas Tobía SL:
A few years ago we had the privilege of trying a Alma Tobía, a truly exceptional wine, author, which is only made in certain vintages ... and to this day sold out in the cellar.
Today we repeat with another wine from the same cellar, a step below Alma Tobía, but that overflows quality on all four sides and maintains the level of his older brother.
Oscar Tobía is a rioja who does not look like Rioja.
Its aging of 24 months in French and Hungarian oak gives it a taste and tastes it in a way, that makes the wine slide without the slightest shade of acidity, without an excessive touch of wood, with a softness and a character that It makes a unique wine.
The best we tried in Rioja lately.

We loved it and we can not recommend this delicate Oscar Tobía.
The second great wine that we have occasion to taste Bodegas Tobías SL.
A pleasure.
