El Tuerto Crianza

El Tuerto

A privileged wine

Crianza | O.C. Rioja

12 months vintage Tempranillo in french oak barrels, complemented by old high garnacha. It rests for at least 6 more months in the bottle to get rounded. Modern styled, where fruitiness stands on a slightly toasted background. With it black cherry color, it’s got an amazing and complex smell: very ripe black fruits, toasted and balsamic scents, cocoa, licorice. In the mid-palate it’s robust, long and pulpy. A wine that makes you think.
