Vega Crianza Rioja, Spain, 2019
Grapes: 78% Tempranillo, 20% Graciano, & 2% Mazuelo, 20 year old vines, 12 months' ageing in American oak.
Intense, cherry-red colour. On the nose, there are notes of ripe fruit (blackcurrants and cherries) which are well integrated with toasted aromas of cinnamon, caramelised tofee and butter. On the palate, this is a velvety wine with good structure and good fruit levels. High quality tannins abound.
"Deep-red-violet to the eye, this wine has aromas of blackberry, milk chocolate and clove. It is soft in the mouth, with fine-grained tannins and flavors of black cherry, cranberry, mocha and black olive. The finish is marked with a splash of orange and note of violet."
90/100 points, Mike DeSimone, Wine Enthusiast, December 2022
Wine Makers Notes: Alcoholic fermentation for 6 days, following by skin contact maceration for 5 days. Fermentation was carried out at 28ºC with malolactic in stainless steel tanks. 12 months in American oak with 2 rackings followed by a minimum of 6 months in bottle until going on sale.
Great with grilled red meats, veal and vegetables.
