Bodegas Valdelana Rioja Agnus Crianza 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: It has a very dark red cherry colour, bright. Very powerful in the nose, with tones of ripe fruit, wild berries, spices, and great toasted notes showing signs of a very good aging in the barrique. Even being a wine of 14% alcohol, the fruit is so intense, that the alcohol is very well integrated in it, so you do not feel it. In the mouth it is a full-bodied wine where you feel the spicy tones of the Tempranillo variety, combined with some velvety sweet tannins. It is a very long wine, but at the same time very round and with a pleasant and non-aggressive aftertaste. Definitely a great wine. Percentage Grape: 95 % Tempranillo, 5% Graciano Type of Harvest: The grapes are destalked and after that they are sent to stainless steel vats where they ferment at controlled temperature of 28°C for 18 days. Then the wine is aged in new oak barrels for 18 months (depending on the year). 50% French and 50% American oak barrels. The wine rounds up in the bottle for another year. Alcohol Percentage: 14 % Aging Time: 18 months in new oak barrels Sugar Rate: 0-5 g/l
