Arnegui Crianza D.O.C.a Rioja 2017

Notable example of Spanish Tempranillo, with a little bit of age and at a killer price. Arnegui Crianza is made exclusively from the best vines at our selected vineyards in La Rioja Alta. The Tempranillo grapes are picked from old vines with a small yield. The result is a wine that truly combines the tannic structure of Rioja wines with elegance and balance.

The 2017 Arnegui Crianza Rioja is made from grapes harvested at their prime and was produced using both modern and traditional winemaking techniques. It’s well balanced, with just enough grip from the tannins and acidity, while also being full of flavor. Notes of ripe red cherries, plum, toasty oak and a dash of vanilla and thyme to finish. It goes great with red meat cooked to perfection and doesn’t shy away from sitting beside a pizza or pasta. Grab a case and stock up for winter!
