Ramón Bilbao Crianza is a classic Rioja wine made by Bodegas Ramon Bilbao, a winery that has more than a century of history.
It was founded in 1924 by Don Ramón Bilbao Murga, although since 1896, Don Ramón ran a small winery in Haro selling his first wines. Ramón Bilbao Crianza is a varietal wine made from Tempranillo grapes, a typical variety of La Rioja, from various fields.
The grapes are harvested at their peak of ripeness by being monitored, which takes place throughout the cycle. The grapes are destemmed and each plot is fermented separately at a controlled temperature of 28-29ºC.
The wine is run off quickly once the desired colour is achieved. Ramón Bilbao Crianza is aged for 14-months in American oak barrels. Once it has finished aging, it spends 8 months in bottle before going to market.
Ramón Bilbao Crianza is a classic of La Rioja. Fruity, balanced and perfectly tuned due to the work done with the oak barrels.
|Tasting Notes||:||Garnet red colour, clean and bright with tears. In the nose, the wine displays medium intensity, frank with aromas of fresh black fruit, liquorice and sweet notes of ageing such as nutmeg, cinnamon and patisserie. In the mouth it is intense, medium acidity, integrated tannins and medium-bodied. The aftertaste recalls black fruit and woody aromas. Harmony, balance and ready to consume.|
