After a meticulous harvest, the vinification process of this Spanish red wine was carried out in a traditional manner.
First, the grapes were destemmed, crushed and cold-macerated for about 3 weeks. Once alcoholic fermentation was completed, this Crianza red wine was aged for 12 months in 3rd year French (60%) and American (40%) oak barrels.
Finally, Luis Cañas Crianza 2016 was aged for an additional 9 months in the bottle to round its texture.
Unquestionably, this is one of Rioja's great values.
The wine Luis Cañas Crianza has a ruby-coloured robe with a purple rim.
This red wine made from Tempranillo & Grenache suggests some clean aromas of ripe red fruits, accompanied by a background of balsamic, spicy and smoked remembrances.
Notes of blackberries, cherries and raspberries nuanced by hints of spices and underbush. This Crianza red wine from Luis Cañas has a velvety texture and smooth, well-integrated tannins. Medium finish, with remembrances of red fruit and balsam.
