Product Description

One of La Rioja's modern classics, Vivanco Crianza is an excellently priced Spanish red wine that, besides the typical Tempranillo, is also made from Graciano and Maturana Tinta, a recently recovered indigenous variety.

Harvested by hand in early October, the grapes were first cold-macerated. After a light pressing, the wine must was put into little French oak vats, where it was fermented and macerated at a controlled temperature with periodic pump-overs.

The malolactic fermentation of this Crianza red wine from La Rioja was also carried out in those little vats, after which Vivanco Crianza 2017 was aged for 16 months in French and American oak barrels, with several rack-and-returns.

Finally, the wine also known as Vivanco Crianza Selección de Familia was aged for a further 6 months in the bottle prior to its commercial release.

Interestingly, the label of this wine from the Vivanco winery reproduces "Le Troubadour", a painting of the great Catalan artist Joan Miró.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Vivanco Crianza has an intense, bright cherry colour with violet tinges.


Pleasant and gentle, this blend of Tempranillo, Graciano and Maturana smells of of strawberries and raspberries, nuanced by hints of toast and vanilla, some floral remembrances, a touch of balsam and a dash of liquorice.


Well-balanced and tasty, this Crianza red wine conveys typical notes of red berries, bluberries, spices and balsam. This wine from bodega Vivanco has a good acidity, ripe tannins and a medium, fruity finish.
