Characteristics of Ángeles de Amaren

Ángeles de Amaren is a red wine made by D.O. La Rioja by Bodega Amaren in the town of Villabuena, in La Rioja Alavesa.
In 1995, the first vintage of Ángeles de Amaren was born as a high end wine from Bodega Luis Cañas.
In 2009 Juan Luis Cañas established Bodega Amaren as a tribute to his mother, Amaren means mother in Basque, and they produced a great wine from La Rioja.
It is made from Tempranillo (85%) and Graciano(15%) varieties.
The grapes are grown on vines of more than 40 years old planted in terraced and hillsides protected by Sierra Cantabria. The plots are in poor soils with a poor efficiency but with a grape of an excellent quality.
Bodega Amaren practices a respectful agriculture using only organic fertilizers and without using herbicides.
The harvest is done by hand and the grapes are transported to the winery in small plastic crates.
The vineyards can be found close to the winery with the transportation to the winery being as fast as possible so that the grapes arrive at the winery in the optimum state.
The grapes pass through a double selection process on tables, the first selection is of the bunches in perfect conditions. Once they have been destemmed, there is a second selection where they select the best grapes.
The vinification of the varieties is done separately in order to maintain the Tempranillo fruit and the complex Graciano.
Ángeles de Amaren undergoes an aging for 16 months in new French and American oak barrels.
Ángeles de Amaren is a low production wine. A great wine from La Rioja have a high fruit load and are very expressive.

Tasting notes Ángeles de Amaren

After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
2010 was considered the perfect vintage after some very good years. An optimal growth cycle, without incidents regarding the health of the vineyards. The harvest took place during a magnificent state of the vines and with a moderate production, with good fruit setting and slow ripening. A great year with excellent ageing potential, which resulted in spicy and fruity wines, with a very good structure and acidity.
Sight Intense red picota colour.
Nose On the nose it is a very elegant wine. Fruit preserve, liquorice notes, toasted notes from the barrel, nuances of a bakery and certain mineral touches.
Taste On the palate there is fresh fruit. Very elegant and very widespread. Mature and noble tannins. A long finish with black fruit and coffee notes.
Sight Intense cherry colour with a medium-high robe and violet borders. Dense legs. Nose Intense and pleasant aromas with a good load of fruit along with good notes of wood and good toasted aromas. The notes of toffee, chocolate, bakery and the refined balsamic hints appear later on a nice spicy background. Taste Angeles de Amaren is an expressive and elegant wine with a soft attack and a tasty, velvety mid palate. It has a good presence of fruit very well integrated with its ripe tannins. Long finish that leaves good toasted aromas.
Sight Cherry red color with high cape. Nose The aromas are of great intensity, with a very strong fruit set against a background of wood and milk with spicy nuances. Taste It is tasty and expressive with a soft tannin and fresh. Its finish is long memories appearing red and black fruit.
