Availability: In stock
Made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this Spanish red wine comes from vineyards situated in Barbastro, Huesca, DO Somontano, at approximately 400 metres of altitude. The area has a Mediterranean-Continental climate with scarce rainfall and plenty of sunlight. Soils are composed of rocks and limestone.
Once in the cellar, the grapes were meticulously sorted and separately fermented in stainless steel tanks. Once malolactic fermentation was completed, Laus Tinto Crianza 2017 was transferred into 225-litre hybrid (made from French and American oak) and French oak barrels and aged for a period of 8 months.
Pleasant and balanced, this Crianza red wine from Somontano will be a nice accompaniment for meat recipes, hearty rice dishes or a nice cheese or cold meats platter.
The red wine Laus Tinto Crianza is deep ruby with some bluish reflections.
This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is balanced and nicely crafted, with remembrances of clove, vanilla and cedarwood, intertwined with aromas of black fruit, green bell pepper and herbs.
This wine from bodega Laus is fresh and fruit-driven, with well-rounded, gently sweet tannins and a lively mid palate. Toasted and a tad smokey, with good ripe fruit and a long spicy finish.
