Product Description

The most interesting feature of the wine Proelio Crianza is that this blended Spanish red wine is sourced from old vineyards scattered across some little explored regions in DOCa Rioja

More specifically, this blend of TempranilloGrenache and Maturana Tinta produced by Bodegas Palacios Vinos de Finca comes from the following areas: Sonsierra Riojana and Alavesa, Alto Najerilla, Laderas del Moncalvillo and Albelda de Iregua. The vines, planted at an altitude around 750 metres above sea level, are 40 to 70 years old.

Hand-harvested, the grapes were selected on site and then separately vinified. The Tempranillo was fully destemmed, whereas the Grenache was fermented whole bunch. This red wine from La Rioja was fermented with native yeasts under controlled temperature. 

After that, the wine Proelio Crianza 2019 was aged for 12 months in French, American and Eastern European oak barrels. The the wine was transferred into concrete diposits to stabilize it.

Finally, this Crianza red wine was bottled and aged for a further 20 months before being released onto the market.

Pair with roasted meat recipes, cold cuts and aged cheeses.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Proelio Crianza is deep ruby with a purplish hue on the rim.


This wine made from Tempranillo with Grenache and Maturana brings aromas of black plums, cranberries and blackberries with a spicy undercurrent, a splash of ground coffee and a smokey and earthy note.


This Crianza from Proelio-Bodegas Palacios Vinos de Finca is concentrated and moreish, with good freshness to counter the weight, some fine grained tannins and good fruit seasoned with spices and a leathery note. FInish is long and expressive.

Our personal opinion

The terroir-bound wine Proelio Crianza 2019 is a great take on the traditional Rioja style.
