Red Wine Bagús 2012
Availability: Out of stock
Bagús is a Ribera del Duero red wine produced by the López Cristobal winery.
Because of the exacting quality standards of the winery, this wine is only produced in exceptional vintages.
The grapes were harvested and meticulously selected in the cellar.
Once the vinification process was completed, this red wine by Bodega López Cristobal was aged for 14 months in new 80% French and 20 % American oak barrels.
Finally, this estate red wine was aged for a further 18 months in the cellar prior to its commercial release.

Decant 1 hour before drinking.
Bagús has a very bright, intense, clean, high cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.
This single estate wine from Ribera del Duero made from Tinta del País is remarkably deep and pure. Complex aromas of black fruit, liquorice, clove, cardamom, cedar, chocolate, fine leather, sesame, withered leaves, underscored by nuances of mineral and dry earth.
Bold and robust, this Crianza red wine by Bodega López Cristóbal still shows some rough edges that will mellow within a few years. This is an age-worthy wine, with an exceptional acidity, mighty tannins and a tremendous richness and complexity that only needs some time to settle. Very long finish, with remembrances of balsam, blackcurrants, charcoal, cocoa and spices.
