Product Description
Details

The facilities of bodega Torre de Oña, the producer of Finca San Martín Crianza 2017, are located in Páganos, near the village of Laguardia, in the very heart of Rioja Alavesa.

A varietal Tempranillo, this Spanish red wine from DOCa Rioja was made exclusively from estate-owned vineyards.

The grapes were picked by hand and traditionally vinified. Destemmed and gently crushed, they were fermented in stainless steel tanks. Then, 60% of the red wine Finca San Martín Crianza 2018 was aged in new American oak barrels, and 40% of it was aged in 3rd year French oak barrels, for over a period of 16 months.

During the process, this wine from bodega Torre de Oña, a brand of Grupo La Rioja Alta, was racked 3 times. Finally, it was bottled in June 2020.

Fresh and lively, this is a very versatile Crianza red wine.
