Ontañón's Crianza is a benchmark for this style of red - richly fruited, warm oak spice, fresh balancing acidity and smooth tannins.
Ripe aromas of black fruit with warm wood spice.
Cherry and plum fruit on the palate with fresh acidity and smooth balancing tannins. Classic, approachable and satisfying.
Produced from 40-year-old vines grown on the slopes of the Sierra Yergas, just south of the River Ebro in Rioja Baja. The wine is produced predominantly from Tempranillo grown in the La Montesa vineyard, blended with 10% Garnacha from Siete Caminos to add aroma and body. Following a long maceration period, the wine spends 12 months in 60% American and 40% French oak barrels (both used and new). This is followed by a further 12 months in bottle prior to release.
