2018 Finca Nueva Tempranillo Crianza Rioja
Winemaker Notes: Bright red cherry in color with soft and elegant aromas found in the nose, including cassis, Bing cherry, mixed-berry jam, milk chocolate and sweet spice. On the palate, the wine mimics the nose and is well-balanced with perfectly integrated tannins and a nice finish.12 months in French Oak Barrels
100% TempranilloFounded in 2004 by famed winemaker Miguel Ángel de Gregorio in the heart of Rioja Alta, Finca Nueva leads the new wave of Riojan wines that adhere to Rioja’s traditional aging and classification system, but are more fresh, fun and enjoyable on the palate than their conventional ‘old-world’ Riojan counterparts. Wines are made solely from varieties indigenous to Rioja, a region known as one of Spain’s oldest and most famous grape growing region. Vines are planted in close proximity to the banks of the Ebro River, farmed sustainably and harvested by hand. The region’s diverse terroir and varying elevations provide complex, consumer-friendly wines that are produced by one of Europe’s most celebrated winemakers, who routinely garners high honors for the wines he makes at his newest estate, or “Finca Nueva”.
