Critical response 

Almaviva 2021 was rated 96+ points by Luis Gutiérrez of The Wine Advocate, who called the wine ‘sleek’ but ‘still very young and still marked by élevage in oak’.  

Joaquin Hidalgo (Vinous) rated the wine 96 points, praising its ‘enticing nose’ and ‘velvet texture’.  

Fair Value analysis  

The chart above shows that the 2020 vintage, which is rated similarly to the 2021 (96 points) is available at a 17.5% discount to today’s release.  

Almaviva prices are also 69.7% correlated to age, according to Liv-ex’s Fair Value methodology. This means that they tend to follow the traditional pricing pattern for fine wine whereby vintages appreciate in price with the passing of time.  

Looking at the chart below, the new release is offered at fair value. However, some older back vintages of Almaviva come below the fair value line, and already benefit from a few years in bottle. Buyers may want to consider the 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2020 vintages as alternatives to the new release.
