Product Description

Crafted by the Montebaco winery, Semele Crianza is a Spanish red wine from Ribera del Duero.

A blend defined by 90% Tempranillo, complemented by a tiny amount of Merlot (10%), it is made from grapevines planted in the Monte Alto estate, at an altitude of 850 metres above sea level.

The plot is located right between the towns of Pesquera de Duero and Valbuena, at the very heart of Ribera del Duero's "Golden Mile".

After a meticulous harvest and a careful vinification, Semele Crianza 2017 was aged for 12 months in oak barrels.

Aerate this tasty red wine from Ribera del Duero 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The wine Semele Crianza has a clean, bright, medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a crimson rim.


This crianza red wine from Ribera del Duero, shows a good balance between fruity aromas and wooden notes. Notions of ripe black fruit, some flowery touches, a dash of liquorice and hints of spices and dry earth.


Fresh and savoury, this blend of Tempranillo and Merlot has a good acidity, slightly dry tannins and a long, fruity finish that leaves some remembrances of wild berries, liquorice and spices.
