The 91 points obtained, put this wine in privileged positions in the list, placing it within 20% of the best Spanish red wines rated in the last 12 months, with the added value that it is in the first place (with another 6) in value for money of Spanish wines in its price category (PVP wines 1-20 $), and included in the list (8th position) of “Top values all red wines 20$ or less” considering all the wines worldwide.
