Crianza Rioja DOCa 2010

El Coto de Rioja

El Coto de Rioja Crianza is one of the most popular wines in all of Spain and one of the top selling Rioja's in the world. Year in/ year out this wine exhibits character, complexity and value unmatched in the category.

Terroir: The Crianza is sourced from low yielding Tempranillo grown on estate and other vineyards primarily in Rioja Alta, as well as additional sources in Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Baja.

Vinification: The wine is macerated and fermented in stainless steel vats for 20-25 days with extended time on the skins to extract flavor and complexity, followed by 12 months aging in a combination of new and used American oak and 6 months in bottle prior to release.

Additional Information

This 100% Tempranillo shows layers of fresh raspberries, cherry, cedar and spice typical of a classically styled Rioja. This is all wrapped up in a vanilla and leather laiden package that is medium in body and sports a long, soft finish. Always a good value!

    "Ruby-red. Fresh red fruit and floral aromas show good energy and pick up a smoky nuance with air. Offers pliant cherry-vanilla and bitter chocolate flavors, with a tangy jolt of mint adding cut. Dusty tannins grip the finish, which shows good focus and persistence. Give this one a little air time."
