Characteristics of Calderona Crianza
Calderona Crianza is a red wine from Cigales, a wine production area located halfway between the provinces of Palencia and Valladolid, by the river Pisuerga. It is produced by the Frutos Villar winery, founded in 1960, which is one of the leading wineries in this region.
Viña Calderona Crianza is made with Tempranillo grapes (100%). A manual harvest occurs, with a traditional maceration and 100% stripping.
Later, this wine is placed in stainless steel tanks with daily pumping and fermentation at controlled temperature of 28-30 ° C for 15-20 days.
Before placing in barrels, it is uncovered and left to stand.
The wine is aged in American oak barrels (95%) and French oak (5%) barrels for at least 12 months, the wine is racked every 3 or 6 months. The development process ends when the wine is aged in bottle for about 6 months.

Until recently, the D.O Cigales was a region that produced wines that were defined by the rural and traditional nature of the region and its ancient history. The wines here were made using traditional techniques such as stone vats, treading the grapes by foot and fermentation left to the vagaries of nature. However, over the past two decades, the reality of wine here has become something very different. One only has to enter any of the of the region’s renowned wineries to notice that their wines have taken the highway of modernity, shaking off their old reputation. The region has continued to produce rosés, although they are now juicier, fresher and well balanced. The region is also leaning ever more towards the production of red wines, following the example set by other regions along the Duero river, although perhaps with the difference that here they may be easier to drink.
