Vivanco Rioja Crianza tasting note
Full red in color, delicious scent with ripe red fruit, herbs and creamy oak. The taste sets in smoothly and develops a beautiful, full flavor structure with a lot of aromatic length.
Rafael Vivanco is named by English wine writer Tim Atkin MW as one of the ten best modern winemakers in the Rioja. His wines are flawless, have ripe fruit tones and Rafael is reluctant to use toasted new oak. Rafael learned his modern way of making wine in Bordeaux, where he studied oenology and gained practical experience. The crianza is a fine example of good winemaking the way we like it. The tempranillo grapes are hand-picked late, in October, from vineyard plots in the Rioja Alta, in the village of Briones. After the alcoholic fermentation, the lactic acid fermentation in oak casks follows, followed by a maturation of approximately 16 months. All treatments in the basement, such as the traditional crossing from cask to cask, are done without pumping and with the help of gravity. Rafael does everything he can to create refined wines with complexity. You can taste that in this beautiful crianza.
