The Altos R Crianza of Altos de Rioja presents itself in a strong ruby red with violet reflections. The bouquet is determined by wild berries, cherries and some prune. Spicy barrel notes, some roasted aroma and balsamic nuances complement.
On the palate, this Crianza from Spain's top Rioja DOCa region, aged for a total of 18 months, is full-bodied and accompanied by incisive but harmonious tannins. Very round and coherent also in the long finish.
