Tasting Notes

A forward and attractive, modern, style of Crianza with perfectly integrated and expressive plum and juicy blackcurrant aromas - complemented by perfumed jasmine notes, pepper and spice. Medium bodied on the palate, with more ripe black fruits and hints of vanilla, building to a savoury finish with light tannins giving grip.

Producer details

This large, family-owned estate draws from 800 hectares of elevated hillside vineyards in some of the best zones of Rioja Baja. Thanks to a combination of the high quality of the grapes from these vineyards and modern vinification cellars, the young, unoaked wines are fresh and vibrant with good richness of fruit for wines at this level. A new barrel ageing cellar was completed in 2006 as production of the ripe and supple Crianza increases.

In the vineyard

Artesa Rioja Crianza is made from Tempranillo grapes cultivated in hillside vineyards (600 metres above sea level) in the best parts of Rioja Baja. The vineyards have clay stone soil with some sandy spots. 80% of the vines are trained in the trellis method and 20% are bush trained.

In the winery

The grapes are chilled for several hours before fermentation is started. Fermentation is temperature controlled (maximum temperature does not exceed 28 degrees Centigrade) and lasts for 15 days with twice daily remontage. The wine is matured for at least 12 months in American oak, 20% new each year, before being bottled.

Food Recommendations

Casseroles, red and white meats and mature cheeses.
