The deep, shiny red colour of the Altos Ibéricos Crianza by Miguel Torres is reminiscent of ripe cherries. Floral-fruity aromas of Damascus roses and sweet berries such as strawberry, raspberry and blackberries accompanied by slightly smoky, spicy notes characterize the bouquet of this wonderful wine. The 12-month maturation in French and American barricas gives the Altos Ibéricos Crianza even more complexity.
The red fruit aromas and the fine spice note of the bouquet are also present on the palate. A powerful yet velvety, smooth feeling determines the taste of this wonderful Spanish red wine. Carried by a medium body and accompanied by mature, finely integrated tannin, this red wine flows into an elegant aftertaste with a hint of sweet vanilla.
