Crafted by the founder and current winemaker, Matías Callejo, Beronia Crianza is a great all-rounder from Rioja.
The wines produced by Bodegas Beronia have a distinctive flair, an unmistakable "Beronia style" that comes from its long fermentation process.
During that operation, frequent pump-overs and punch-downs are performed in order to extract colour and aromas.
Thus, this Spanish red wine was aged for 12 months in tanks and for another 12 months in combined oak barrels, the staves made of American oak, and the heads made of French oak.
Finally, Beronia Crianza 2016 was aged for 6 months in the bottle prior to its commercial release.
Drink now until 2024.
The red wine Beronia Crianza has a very bright, medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.
This Crianza from La Rioja smells of strawberries, cherries and blackberries, combined with aromas of chocolate, coffee, spices, and some mineral undertones.
Fresh and gentle, this crianza red wine by Bodega Beronia (a brand of Grupo González Byass) is smooth, with some ripe tannins and a well-balanced acidity. Black fruit, some toasted and smokey nuances, and dash of chocolate and coffee. Long, lively finish.
