RAMÓN BILBAO CRIANZA
VARIETY 100% Riojan Tempranillo.
Maybe this is the wine with the best consistency in the range, the secret is following up closely each parcel during the cycle and picking the grapes at the optimum time for each one. Another key aspect is the separate fermentation of each estate and the final blending before the oak-ageing and on each racking. Fermentation temperatures go up to 28-29ºC and quick devatting, once the colour extraction (tanins and anthocyanins) is at the optimum level.
Cherry-red colour with ruby red rim. Clean and medium intense aromas of ripe red berries, bay leaf and mineral touches and some cocoa as well. It is fresh at the entrance to the mouth and pleasant mouth feel where the red currant and wild strawberries memories reappear. It is spicy on the background with light notes of shrubland and a long aftertaste.
