Dinastia Vivenco Crianza 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

A new modern winery, Dinastia Vivanco make modern styled Riojas with the focus firmly on bright, juicy fruit flavours. Owned by the Vivanco family, the winery sits alongside what is generally regarded to be the world's greatest museum of wine. The Museum houses treasures acquired over two generations by the Vivanco family from ancient Egyptian art through to works by Picasso. The whole experience is testimony to an extraordinary family's passion for all things vinous. Rioja Crianza 2005 shows intense cherry red, this wine has aromas of parma violets and red fruit, vanilla and spice. This is a wine with a concentration of red fruit flavours from the ripe Tempranillo as well as well integrated spice, vanilla and a light toastiness, for a long, elegant finish. A superb accompaniment to red and white meats, vegetables and rice dishes.

Dinastia Vivanco:
The origins of the winemaking vocation of the Vivanco family date back to the year 1915; to the winemaking district of the village of Alberite, La Rioja, where Pedro Vivanco Gonzalez started to make wine for family use from his vineyards. In 1940 he bought a small wine cellar business in the same village. A curious caption had been carved over the door of that cellar reading: “he who walks by and is thirsty, if the door is, should enter and drink”.

Dinastia Vivanco Crianza Tinto 2005: Ein von Purpurreflexen durchzogenes, leuchtend-brillantes, dunkles Kirschrot schimmert im Glas. Ein unglaublich reichhaltiges Bukett mit mineralischen Aromen und Noten vonVanille, Gewürzen und reifen Früchten und von neuem Holz verführen die Nase. Ein eleganter, harmonischer, vollmundiger und körperreicher Geschmack und die weichen deutlich spürbaren Tannine binden sich perfekt in den Gesamteindruck dieses facettenreichen Weines mit nachhaltigem Abgang ein. Genießen Sie diesen Wein solo bei zirka 12 bis 16°C oder zu hellem (Wilg-)Geflügel, erlesenem Käse oder asiatisch-gewürzten Gerichten.Weingut: Dinastia VivancoRegion: RiojaRebsorte: TempranilloInhalt: 0.75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 4,75 g/lRestsüße: 2 g/lLagerfähigkeit: fünf bis sieben Jahre ab JahrgangFassreife: in Barriques gereift (16 Monate)Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 12-16°C Rotwein > Spanien > Rioja



Tasting Notes:

Intense cherry red, with a narrow bright violet rim, this wine has lots of mature red fruit aromas of cherry and strawberry with red fruits and a well integrated, light "toastiness" and medium body. Long and elegant finish.
