  • El Coto Crianza Rioja

  • The Crianza is sourced mainly from Rioja Alta, giving the wine its power with its iron soils. Rioja Alavesa's limestone soils bring brightness, and Rioja Baja's clay soils give it a rich texture. Aged for twelve months in American oak and left in the bottle for six months before release, this wine 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 laden package that is medium in body and sports a long, soft finish.   Pair with heartier stews, red meats, and strong cheeses.

    VARIETY: 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 10% Carignan, 10% Cinsault
