The Crianza of Viñas del Vero is a wonderful Spanish red wine cuvée from the Spanish DO Somontano region, which combines the two grape varieties Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon.
In the glass, this wine shines in a deep garnet red with ruby red reflections. The bouquet is characterized by the expressive aromas of sweetly ripened berries - especially raspberry, blackberry and currant - as well as elegant spices and roasted notes. On the palate, this Spanish red wine begins to show its gentle side before it becomes increasingly powerful and aromatic. The ripe fruit harmonizes wonderfully with the subtle oak wort. A harmonious and balanced red wine that closes with a beautiful length.
Vinification of Viñas del Vero Crianza
After harvesting the grapes, the harvested material is immediately taken to the Viñas del Vero winery where it is completely destemmed, gently ground and cold mashed for 48 hours. By mashing in the berry peels, the first aromas and color pigments are extracted from the berry peels. The mash is then fermented in stainless steel tanks for 14 days. The cellar master only uses the fine, free-flowing preliminary wines from the mash for this red wine. Finally, this wine rests for 8 months in oak barrels. Only slightly filtered, the Viñas del Vero Crianza is filled into the bottle.
