Product Description
Details

Corona de Aragón Reserva 2012 is made from a blend of Tempranillo, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cariñena

It is made from vineyards located at altitudes between 500 and 700 metres in the Cariñena DO.

Produced by Grandes Vinos y Viñedos, the grapes were traditionally vinified in stainless steel tanks.

Then the wine was aged in 70% French and 30% American oak barrels for 14 months.

Finally, this Corona de Aragón with the golden label was bottled.

Drink until 2020.
