Sierra Cantabria launches its new Sierra Cantabria Crianza 2015 vintage, featuring a new, more modern and elegant look.

A Tempranillo that evokes the identity of the Riojan Sonsierra region, fruity and aromatic, elegant and fresh, with a sweet, velvety tannin that proves complex and balanced.

Sierra Cantabria Crianza 2015 comes from vines hand-harvested in San Vicente de la Sonsierra and Labastida before being aged in barrels for 14 months.

Tasting Notes: Red-ruby of medium-high intensity, with slight orange tones on the edge of the glass. Intense aroma, with slight lactic, red fruit and spice tinges. The secondary aromas from its aging (vanilla, cocoa, roasted scents) are very much present. On the palate it is flavourful and well developed, with ripe tannins and a good acid-alcohol balance. Its fruity character subtly prevails over its toasted, roasted, cocoa and vanilla flavours, giving it complexity.
