Characteristics of Marqués de Arienzo Crianza

Arienzo Crianza is a red wine from the D.O La Rioja produced by the winery Marqués de Riscal. This vintage winery was founded in 1858 by Marqués de Riscal, one of the main figures involved in the development of D.O Rioja.
The winery Marqués de Riscal can be found in El Ciego, in the extreme south of the Rioja Alavesa.
Arienso Crianza is produced practically exclusively from the varietal Tempranillo (90%) of which small percentages of Graciano (5%) and Mazuelo (5%) are added.
The grapes derive from vineyards located in the towns of Laguardia and El ciego, two of the most southern locations in Álava.
The harvest of this vintage of Arienzo Crianza started on the 17th of September. In as much, the production of wine is completed purely by traditional methods. The process of the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation are achieved in stainless steel containers at a regulated temperature.
After the process of fermentation Arienzo Crianza spends 18 months of ageing in Amercian oak barrels. Finally, after being bottled, the wine will spend a further 12 months to mature.

Tasting notes Marqués de Arienzo Crianza

High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
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.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
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.
Sight Garnet red, high intensity with a hint of violet. Clean and bright. Nose Medium-strong intensity. Mature red fruit aromas with spicy and toasted notes.
Taste Fresh and pleasant on the palate. A full and fruity flavour. Tannins are well integrated and good acidity. The finish ends on notes from the barrel.
Sight Powerful ruby colour with shades of orange. Neat and sparkling. Nose Aromas of spice and toasted notes from the barrel, a fruity and highly concentrated background. Taste Extensive wine with character, initial fruit flavour gives way to notes of the barrel. Good acidity.
Sight Intense ruby colour with brick red trims. Clean and bright. Nose The spicy and toasty aromas provided by the oak take centre stage on a background of well concentrated notes of fruit. Taste Large attack for this tasty wine in which the fruit gives way to the notes provided by the wood. Good acidity that provides it with freshness. Acceptable finish with an aftertaste presided by the notes of wood.
