Ramirez de la Piscina Crianza Rioja 2018
Caliente!! This glorious wine for this price is unbeatable, ripe fruits smack you in the pallet upon first sip, and gets even better after the second course .. Should be consumed with sea-bream ceviche and 100% Jamon iberico, maybe mix in an espresso martini post dinner. ¡Buen provecho!
James Suckling: "Blackberry, tar and violet aromas. Wet earth, too. Medium to full body with firm, racy tannins and a solid finish. A structured and very classic Rioja. Drink or hold." Oct 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|
