Rioja Vega Crianza Limited Edition 2017
The latest vintage of the Limited Edition, barrel-aged Crianza from Rioja Vega has won multiple gold medals and was rated 95 points by Decanter. It is made by one of the oldest estates in Rioja Alta, and one of the few Bodegas officially allowed to include Rioja in its name.
This Limited Edition Crianza 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.
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.
"A very fine modern Rioja. 90/100"
"A wine of quite some style and breeding from one of the best-known and longest-established producers in Rioja Alta. Made largely from Tempranillo with a splash of Graciano and a dash of Mazuelo, it spends 14 months in oak and is soft, smooth and engaging, with ripe, sweet fruit, a hint of vanilla and a robust, dry finish. A worthy medal winner at the 2019 International Wine & Spirit Comp."
