Crianza wines are aged for a minimum of 2 years with 1 year in oak barrels. In central Rioja, the climate is a unique confluence of Continental, Mediterranean and Atlantic. Grapes are hand-harvested from mid-September from 100ha of outstanding vineyards, including a selection of bush-trained vines with an average age of 20 years. Ripe grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks with the temperature controlled at 28?c. Following fermentation and several days maceration, the wine is aged in American oak barrels for 12 months. This results in the perfect balance of fruit and oak flavours.

Food Pairing: Versatile with all kinds of Mediterranean dishes such as pasta, rice, white meat, pulses and barbecues.
