Details

Despite being aged for more than 3 years in wooden vats, Viña Cubillo is the entry-level wine of the legendary winery Bodegas López Heredia – Viña Tondonia

From a vintage qualified as "Excellent" by the DOCa Rioja Regulatory Council, this Spanish red wine is made from 65% Tempranillo, 25% Grenache and tiny amounts of Mazuelo and Graciano.

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 2010 was aged for 3 to 4 years in wooden vats with two yearly rackings.

Bottled in April 2017, this Crianza red wine was further aged for 24 months in the bottle.

Decant 30 minutes before drinking. Drink until 2024.

Additional Information

Appearance

The red wine Viña Cubillo Crianza has an intense cherry colour with a garnet rim.

Nose

An excellent Crianza red wine from La Rioja, it showcases aromas of red and black fruit, alongside notes of sweet spices, leather, toast and Havanna cigars over a liquorice background.

Palate

Fresh and light, this red wine from López de Heredia 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.

Our personal opinion

Deep, well-crafted and easy-to-drink this Viña Cubillo Crianza 2010 by Viña Tondonia truly squares the circle. Pair with cured meats or casseroles.

    This wine is not only cheap. It is excellent. A crossbreed of Bordeaux and Burgundy.
