Dinastia Vivanco Rioja Crianza Magnums 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”.
