Product Description
Details

Produced by Bodegas Amaren, Ángeles de Amaren is an homage to the mother of Luis Cañas, the owner of the winery ("Amaren" means "mother" in basque).

Made from a blend of Tempranillo (85%) and Graciano (15%), this Spanish red wine is produced from low-yielding, over 50-year-old estate-owned vineyards.

Harvested by hand, the grapes were brought to the cellar in little boxes and carefully selected. After that, they were destemmed and selected again.

Vinified in stainless steel tanks, this Crianza red wine completed malolactic fermentation and was subsequently aged in new American and French oak barrels for 16 months. Finally, the wine was blended and aged in the bottle until its commercial release.

Aerate Ángeles de Amaren 2015 from La Rioja 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Ángeles de Amaren has a very bright, medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a crimson rim.

Nose

Deep and spicy, this blend of Tempranillo and Graciano has a rather complex, rich nose. At first there are aromas of black fruit, laurel, rosemary, aromatic herbs, further nuanced by suggestions of clove, strawberries, liquorice, bitter cocoa and vanilla.

Palate

Fresh and expressive, with a precise acidity and some velvety tannins. On the palate, this wine by Bodegas Amaren surprises us with a nice minerality, which had passed unnoticed on the nose, some prominent spicy and creamy notes, and some remembrances of blackberries, toast, balsam and undergrowth. This Crianza red wine has a long finish.

Our personal opinion

A classic Rioja, Ángeles de Amaren 2015 is perfect for lovers of the region's traditional style.

Excellent value. Authentic Rioja character. Besides, the wine was released at the right moment. At 6 years of age, it is the perfect time to drink it.
