Marques de Riscal - Arienzo Crianza Rioja 2017

$15

Arienzo 2017 is Marqués de Riscal’s first Vino de Zona, since it is made 100% from selected the Tempranillo and Graciano grapes from vineyards located in the Rioja Alavesa. Once the grapes achieve optimum point of ripeness they pass to the winery where the natural processes of alcoholic and malolactic fermentation begin in stainless steel vats, under strictly controlled conditions of temperature. Once these processes are complete, the wine will be stored in American-oak barrels for the caskageing process during a period of 18 months, followed by further ageing in bottle..

"Cherry, plum, leather and tobacco aromas are fairly deep and concentrated on the nose. A hefty palate brings flavors of prune, black plum and green herbs. A chocolate note arises on the finish. Best Buy."
