Characteristics of Finca La Emperatriz Crianza

Finca La Emperatriz Crianza is a red wine from La Rioja produced by Bodegas La Emperatriz. This wine contains slight amounts of Garnacha (3%) and Viura (2%) together with the main variety of Tempranillo (95%).

The wine is produced through the assembly of grapes from various plots of Finca La Emperatriz. The vines have an average age of over 25 years.

The harvest is done manually in the second week of October after making a selection in the field. Once in the winery, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks for four days. Pumping takes place for perfect colour extraction.

After bleeding, Finca La Emperatriz Crianza remains with lees.

Finca La Emperatriz Crianza is finally aged for 14 months in American oak barrels -80% of the total and French-20% remaining- of 225 litres.

Before being marketed, Finca La Emperatriz Crianza spends another 12 months in bottle.

La Emperatriz is a warehouse with an extensive vineyard estate in Rioja Alta. The name derives from those who owned the land in the XIX century, Eugenia de Montijo, who was married to the Emperor Napoleon III.

A cellar full of history and tradition that continues to produce excellent wines.

Tasting notes Finca La Emperatriz Crianza

Sight Cherry red with violet hues. It is clean and bright. Nose High intensity, we highlight the aromas of black fruits. Notes of spiced pastry give character. The barrel aging is noticed. Taste Deep and mineral, crisp tannins. In the aftertaste typical mineral notes of wines from winery are perceived. Long and pleasant finish.
Sight Dark cherry colour with violet edges. Clean and very bright. Nose Clean nasal aromas with a medium intensity. The expressive notes of ripe red fruit stand out along with subtle toasted and spicy notes and intense hints of cocoa. Some mineral notes, which provide this wine with complexity, appear in the background. Taste Spanish wine with a nice attack and a silky and quite bulky mid palate which makes it very pleasant. The notes of fruit, very well integrated with the aromas provided during the ageing, make this wine mellow and appealing. Long finish. The notes of ripe fruit and the mineral hints appear again at retro-olfaction. Highly recommendable.

Sight Very bright and intense cherry red colour with a medium layer. Nose Good aromatic intensity with notes of red fruit along with elegant notes of vanilla and toast provided by the oak. When it opens up, light milky touches and complex mineral hints are released. Taste

This wine is gentle, silky, wide and fruity in the palate. It shows balanced notes of fruit and wood, integrated tannins (they still need to finish polishing) and a correct acidity. Good finish with hints of spices and minerals.

A nice Rioja wine, very pleasant, light and easy-drinking.

Sight Clean and bright cherry red.
Nose Very good intensity in the nose, where there is a dominance of the notes of candied fruit, orange peel and ripe fruit that emerged coupled with fine aromas of vanilla and toasted typical of the barrels' oak. A slight mineral hint is also noticed.
Taste

Kind attack with volume and fruity notes. The fruit and wood flavours are very well coupled. Velvety and unctuous mid palate and long and fresh finish. In the aftertaste, fruity notes reemerge together with mineral reminiscences typical of the grapes of Finca La Emperatriz.

Sight Garnet red clean and bright. Nose The initial aroma is given by the ripe fruit notes and fine breeding. By agitation can enjoy its intricacies, yielding orange peel, cherry, pepper and balsamic memories. Taste

Flavor virtue is the smoothness and excellent aftertaste that lingers.
