Vinification:
This is a blend of 80% Tempranillo, 5% Mazuelo (the name for Carignan in the Rioja region) and 15% Garnacha.
A Rioja Crianza is a wine that was aged for at least two years, with a mínimum of one year oak barrel aging.

Nexo Crianza vineyards are located near Viana, in the heart of the Rioja Alta region, with a mountainous landscape, on the Western edge of the greater Rioja region. Rioja Alta is known for its ‘old world’ style of wines. A higher elevation equates to a shorter growing season, which in turn produces fresher fruity flavored wines with a lighter style.
High density vineyards, low-vigor grafting, Guyot training for higher vegetation and the drip irrigation method is managed closely to guarantee a good harvest with a certain level of stress for higher quality fruits.

VINIFICATION
Fermentation took ten days at 28ºCentigrade, 18 days long skin maceration and malolactic fermentation in stainless-steel tanks. The wine was then aged for over 12 months in American oak barrels with two racking. Aged further in the bottle for the wine to refine itself.

Tasting Notes:
Color: Deep red cherry color.
Nose: Dark fruits, some toast, cinnamon and toffee.
Palate: The wine is tasty, with a good structure, meaty and well balanced.
Other: Nexo Crianza will go well with pork, lamb and anything that contains red peppers, paprika, garlic or saffron. It will complement any Spanish influenced cuisine.
