Product Description
Details

A varietal Tempranillo made from estate-owned vineyards, Viuda Negra Crianza is produced by bodega Javier San Pedro Ortega, a modern, innovative winery located in Laguardia, in the heart of Rioja Alavesa.

Made from vines over 20 years old, this Spanish red wine from DOCa Rioja was vinified following minimal intervention techniques.

Fully destemmed, the grapes were macerated for 21 days in stainless steel tanks, after which they were fermented under controlled temperature. Then Viuda Negra Crianza 2017 was transferred into French oak barrels and aged for a period of 14 months.

This varietal Crianza red wine conveys the character of Rioja Alavesa in a faithful way.
