Crianza

Nothing is rushed with our Crianza. We carefully select only the best   Monastrell grapes, allowing fermentations to occur slowly and naturally.

100% Monastrell. Ripe fruit, spices. Intensity, complexity and balance.

Current vintage.- 2012
Blend.- 100% Monastrell

Harvest & Elaboration.- Harvested during first half of October. The grapes are selected from an old parcel of ungrafted Monastrell vines. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks.

Wood aging.- Aged during 12 months in French oak barrels, and 12 months in bottle.

Tasting note.- Cherry-red in colour, the wine offers a sensation of ripe fruit in the mouth, combined with spices and a shooting feeling.

Food pairing.- A wine with character, ideal for red meats and cheeses.
