Rioja Vega Crianza Limited Edition 2016
This Crianza Limited Edition 2016 is Rioja Vega's showtime wine made in small quantities with a wonderful expression of rich, ripe tempranillo that will age beautifully. It over-delivers for a well made, soft and highly drinkable Rioja. Several cases are destined for my cellar.
Rioja Vega, a firm favourite among our customers makes a welcome return. One of the oldest Bodega in Rioja Alta and one of the few Bodegas officially allowed to include Rioja in its name. We were last able to offer these wines at the end of 2018 and we are really pleased to have secured the new vintage which has just arrived with us from Spain.
An expressive red bursting with dark fruits. It has soft tannins, a fresh, clean acidity and delicious complexity from the 18 months ageing in oak barrels.
Critic's Review of the previous vintage:
