Harvested was carried out gradually, according to the ripeness level of each plot. Once in the cellar, the grapes were vinified in stainless steel tanks. After that, Viña Cubillo Crianza 2012 was aged for 3 to 4 years in wooden vats with two yearly rackings.
Bottled in April 2019, this Crianza red wine was further aged for 24 months in the bottle.
Decant this Rioja red wine 30 minutes before drinking.
94,500 bottles produced.
The red wine Viña Cubillo Crianza has an intense cherry colour with a garnet rim.
A wisely crafted blend of Tempranillo, Grenache, Mazuela and Graciano, it showcases aromas of red and black fruit, alongside notes of sweet spices, leather, toast and Havanna cigars over a liquorice background.
Fresh and light, this red wine from López de Heredia-Viña Tondonia has a seamless texture and an excellent balance. The toasted notes are more prominent on the palate, enlivened by hints of wild berries, some vegetal remembrances and a classy touch of tobacco. Savoury tannins, excellent acidity and long finish.
