Product Description
Details

A single varietal Tinta del País (Tempranillo), Viña Sastre Crianza is made from 20 to 60-year-old vines grown on the outskirts of Roa, a town belonging to the province of Burgos. The vineyards are located on the banks of the Duero river, at an altitude around 815 metres above sea level

Harvested at dusk, the grapes were selected both in the vineyard and in the cellar. Then they were gently crushed, and after that this Spanish red wine from Ribera del Duero was fermented and macerated with the skins.

Finally, Viña Sastre Crianza 2016 was aged for 14 months in French and American oak barrels. During that period, the wine was racked four times.

Drink this red wine from Ribera del Duero, produced by Bodega Hermanos Sastre, over the next 6-8 years.

Appearance

The wine Viña Sastre Crianza has a medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

Intense notes of black fruit (bilberries and blackberries), typical of the Tinta Fina variety, with some creamy nuances, aromas of cocoa, toast, vanilla, Jamaica pepper and a dash of underbrush and minerality.

Palate

Meaty and savoury, with a luscious texture enlivened by a delicately warm core. Spices, black fruit, dry earth and some mineral undertones. This Crianza red wine by Viña Sastre has some juicy tannins, a very good acidity and a long, elegant finish.
