GRAPES: 85% Tempranillo, 7.5% Garnacha and 7.5% Mazuelo.
WINEMAKING: Bright garnet colour with purple trim. A young Crianza, where red berries aromas remain over the oaky and balsamic notes from its ageing in American oak. On the palate this wine is very pleasant, round and balanced with notes of sweetness, pastry and a liquorice aftertaste. Ideal partner for the Mediterranean food.
VINEYARDS: From selected vineyards in Rioja Alta.
VINTAGE: During 2014 the climate was favourable resulting in a good vegetative cycle. Both summer and the harvest time have been marked by more rainfall than expected. Once again, the preventive treatments performed in our vineyards, such as cluster thinning and stripping the leaves off have allowed us to obtain high quality grapes.
WINEMAKING: The grapes were hand picked from selected vineyards and, following destalking, they were fermented at controlled temperatures between 28¼° C and 30¼° C. Following a full malolactic fermentation to balance the acidity, and add extra roundness and softeness, the wine was matured for eighteen months in a mixture of French and American oak barrels, with rackings every six months. After bottling, the wine was cellared for a year before being released.
TASTING NOTES: An excellent introduction to the quality of C.V.N.E.’s wines; this Crianza is made from premium Rioja Alta grapes and shows classic touches of vanilla and spice, punching well above its weight.
