A blend of 80% Tempranillo, 10% Garnacha and 10% Mazuelo and Graciano. Matured for 14 months in oak and at least 8 months in bottle.
A fine example of Crianza Rioja. An intensely dark cherry red with sparks of ruby. Initial fruity aromas are followed by spicy notes and aromas from the oak cask ageing. On the palate it is very structured and smooth. The tannins are ripe and mellow and the finish long and refined.
“The Cerro Añón range is made to age for longer in bottle and that’s certainly the case on this youthful Crianza from vineyards in Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. A good proportion of Graciano and Mazuelo add freshness and backbone to the Tempranillo here." Drinking 2019-25: 91 points Tim Atkin
