ZINIO Crianza 2015
Grape variety: 100% Tempranillo
On the land: Crafted from vines between 490‐550 m a.s.l., clay and alluvial soils, mainly in the surface of the land. Alluvial soil renders finer and medium‐bodied wines. Soil diversity provides great fruit complexity, typical of this area.
The vintage: The year 2015 was characterized by abundant rainfall in winter and a hot summer, which brought the harvesting period forward. August was marked by more moderate temperatures and an excellent sanitary state of the plants with a moderate bud load, factors which endured until harvesting.
In the winery: Pre‐fermentation maceration and temperature‐controlled fermentation. 12‐ month aging in American oak barrels and subsequent bottle aging.
In the glass: This vintage is the true expression of this land and of our way of making wine. Appearance: medium‐depth garnet red. Aromas of red fruits and spices with toasty hints. Mouthfeel: fresh, medium‐bodied, featuring ripe tannins, well‐balanced and well‐structured.
At the table: An ideal match to grilled veggies, pulses, red meat, hearty stews, cold cuts and cheese.
Serving temperature: 16‐18°C
