Ramirez de la Piscina Crianza Rioja 2016
Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "Brilliant ruby. Aromas of cherry pit, blackberry, licorice and cola are complemented by a subtle hint of dill. Sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering cherry preserve, red berry, vanilla and rose pastille flavors that spread out slowly on the back half. Shows very good clarity and appealing juiciness on a long, supple finish framed by well-knit tannins. Raised in a combination of French and American oak barrels. Drinking window: 2022-2030." Apr 2021
Winery: "Traditionally styled Rioja Crianza. Characteristic red fruit aromatics of vineyards planted in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, with delicate notes of coffee and spice from oak ageing."
|Aging||14 months in American and French oak barrels in underground cellars followed by 5 months in stainless steel for natural fining and settling|
