Latchago Rioja Crianza - 2012

Intense, cherry-red tone, with medium-high depth and purple rim.

Complex aromas. Appropriate ageing ensures a good balance between the aromas contributed by the oak and ripe, fruity varietal aromas of wild berries.

This is an expressive wine in the mouth, very tasty and full of flavors. Very harmonious palate with elegant, sweet tannins. Clean, persistent aftertaste, leaving a pleasant memory.

Rioja – the home of bright, berry-scented, barrel-aged red wines made from Tempranillo and Garnacha – is arguably Spain's top wine region. It is certainly the most famous, rivaled only by Jerez. Located in northern Spain, Rioja's vineyards trace the course of the Ebro River for roughly 60 miles (100km) between the towns of Haro and Alfaro.

Crianza red wines are aged for 2 years with at least 6 months in oak.
