The wine has spent 18 months in American oak barrels and 6 months in the bottle before release. Intense aromas on the nose coupled with spicy notes from the ageing process in American oak. Smooth in the mouth, with well integrated acidity, highlights of redcurrant, liquorish, and vanilla with smoky notes. Long, complex aftertaste.
Soft aromas of black fruits and sweet spice form the basis for this famous Ribera red, liquorice and hints of coca edge around the more powerful fruit notes. On the palate the well balanced oak maturation is very well defined, complementing rather than overwhelming the fruit. A persistent finish and silky tannins highlight the quality wine making of this Crianza.
