Alútiz Rioja Crianza, Rioja Alavesa, Spain
Fabulous Rioja from the Alavesa region. Intense aroma of ripe fruit, combined with toasted, spicy touches and vanilla notes from its aging in French and American oak. Broad and balanced on the palate, with a perfect harmony between subtle tannins and a pleasant acidity. A tasty and full-bodied Rioja, while retaining finesse and elegance.
