Altanza, Crianza half bottle, DO Rioja 2017Regular price €11.00
Intense red colour with fresh, healthy fruit aromas and a hint of oak. Well rounded on the palate, this aromatic red has ripe concentration, with notes of black cherry, blackberry, liquorice and tobacco. The firm tannins fade into a long, spicy finish. Vinified in stainless steel tanks before a light oaking (twelve months) in French and American barrels.
Good with all sorts of food, this is a superb match for barbecued meats, roast lamb, and kebabs.
