Tasting Notes: Layers of toasty oak meld with red cherry and cranberry with dusty terroir on the nose. The palate is fresh with terrific weight and acidity that line the core of red fruits, with toasty oak and citrus rind tones.
Notes: Aged for 12 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels. Enjoy this delightful Crianza Rioja over the next five to seven years. Drink 2020-2027.
The Domain: Viña Otano comes from a family winery, whose beginnings go back to 1886 when “Grandfather Don Román Montaña” began to engage in the production and aging of wines, becoming the founder of a series of master craftsmen in wines. The current generation of grandchildren continues this work with great success.
The winery is located in Fuenmayor – La Rioja, in the sub-zone of Rioja Alta, a town that is historically known for the high quality and capacity of its wine to age well.
