Appearance

The red wine Valserrano Crianza has a medium cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

An expressive blend of Tempranillo and Graciano, carrrying subtle aromas of fine wood, red berries, spices, smoke and some remembrances of bitter cocoa.

Palate

Clean, pleasant and straightforward, this wine by Bodega Valserrano has a pleasant acidity and some gentle, ripe tannins. Notes of strawberries, vanilla and balsam, with a medium, balsamic finish.

Our personal opinion

Well-balanced and smooth, Valserrano Crianza 2016 is an excellently priced Rioja.
