Characteristics of Diez-Caballero Crianza

Diez-Caballero Crianza is a red wine produced by the Diez-Caballero winery in the municipality of Elciego (Álava), D.O.Ca. Rioja.

Diez-Caballero is a small family winery with a long tradition in the production of bulk wines, until in 1979 Victoria Cañas, together with her husband, decided to change its focus and start making their wines with the intention of selling them bottled.

Currently heading production are his two sons, Antonio andVictoria Diez-Caballero. To do so they have 25 hectares of vineyard divided into different plots, all distributed around Elciego, in the heart of Rioja Alavesa. The winery perfectly combines all the new technologies into an architecture with many years of history. The result are honest wines that show us all the character of this magnificent area.

Diez-Caballero Crianza is a wine made with Tempranillo grapes from the winery’s own vineyards, over 80 years old, located on clay-calcareous soils in the Elciego area.

After harvesting by hand, once in the cellar they ferment in concrete tanks, with a long maceration. This wine is aged in French and American oak barrels for 15 months.

Tasting notes Diez-Caballero Crianza

This vintage, rated as "Very Good", was characterized by the hard frost that occurred when the vegetative cycle was beginning in mid-April, and by the subsequent drought. Except for these two weather events, the year passed normally, with the vintage displaying a perfect health status in the last phase of the cycle. The wines of this vintage are characterized by having a somewhat higher average graduation than 2016, with a very good aging capacity and a high percentage of fine and very identifiable wines.
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.
Diez-Caballero Crianza 2015 Diez-Caballero Crianza 2015 is a deep, silky and elegant wine. This magnificent vintage displays all the character of its variety with frankness, in perfect harmony with the notes of aging. Distinguished on the nose, the aromas of ripe red and black fruit stand out with subtle toasted notes of aging. On the palate it is pleasant, with a certain volume and a fresh and lingering finish.
