The Crianza from Viñas del Vero is a wonderful Spanish red wine cuvée from the Spanish growing region DO Somontano, which combines the two grape varieties Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon.
In the glass this wine shines in a deep garnet red with ruby red reflections. The bouquet is characterised by the expressive aromas of sweet ripe berries - especially raspberries, blackberries and currants - as well as elegant spicy and toasted notes. On the palate, this Spanish red wine begins to show its soft side before becoming increasingly powerful and aromatic. The ripe fruit harmonises wonderfully with the discreet oak spice. A harmonious and balanced red wine that closes with a beautiful length.
Vinification of the Viñas del Vero Crianza
Once the grapes have been harvested, they are immediately taken to the Viñas del Vero winery, where they are completely destemmed, gently ground and cold crushed for 48 hours. The first aromas and colour pigments are extracted from the berry skins by maceration. The mash is then fermented in stainless steel tanks for 14 days. For this red wine, the cellar master exclusively uses the fine, free-flowing preliminary wines from the mash. Finally this wine rests for 8 months in oak barriques. The Viñas del Vero Crianza is only lightly filtered and bottled.
