Produced by the prestigious Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España (CVNE), the red wine Viña Real Crianza is made from 90% Tempranillo, complemented with Mazuelo,Grenache and Graciano.

The 2016 vintage of this Spanish red wine was a very good one. Harvest was carried out during October, that is, significantly later than usual.

The grapes were manually harvested, destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature.

After the completion of malolactic fermentation, this red wine from La Rioja was transferred into French and American oak barrels, where it was aged for 14 months.

We suggest that you aerate Viña Real Crianza 2016 from the DOCa Rioja 30 minutes before you drink it.

Additional Information


The red wine Viña Real Crianza has a medium claret robe with a reddish rim.


Intense aromas of blackberries, raspberries and cherries. This red wine from La Rioja Alavesa also suggests subtle wooden notes, particularly sweet spices and balsam.


Good balance between fruit and oak. This Crianza from CVNE shows a classic Rioja character, with mild tannins, crisp acidity and a good persistence.

Our personal opinion

Round and well-balanced, Viña Real Crianza 2016 never fails to deliver. A good everyday Rioja.

  1. charming review by Mr. Washington on 11/4/2017

    Excellent, as always. Red and black fruit, very pleasant. Even better if you recork the bottle and finish it the next day.
