Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
One of a trio of different Crianzas in the Ramón Bilbao range, this is the most ambitious of the lot, produced solely from Tempranillo fruit grown in Ávalos. Dense, plush and still quite tannic, with liquorice and damson fruit, it needs time for the oak to integrate. 2020-28. Alcohol: 14%

Our aim is to obtain the best matured wines so that you can enjoy a wine for drinking, savouring and tasting again.
Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.
Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
