DESCRIPTION


Rioja Crianza is far too often a wine category, whose quality, trimmed by industrial production and massive output to commercial success, rarely promises what the name suggests. Unlike our BAIGORRI Crianza: Authentic quality, originating from the vineyards of Rioja Alavesa, hand crafted and bottled without being fined or filtered.  A powerful, fruit driven red wine, with enough structure and grip for a long life, but already far too tasty when it is young.

Crianza red wine made from the varieties Tempranillo (90%), Garnacha (5%) and a small percentage of other native ones, sourced exclusively from vineyards located in Rioja Alavesa.

After a manual picking, all the grapes are hand-selected using vibration and selection tables. Long macerations and intracellular fermentations with indigenous yeasts in conic stainless-steel tanks. Natural extraction by gravity. 14 month ageing in French and American oak barrels.
