Characteristics of Piérola Crianza

Piérola Crianza is a red wine from the Rioja produced by Fernández de Piérola. It is a varietal Tempranillo.

The grapes come from vines that are over 30 years old and whose production is less than 5,500 kg / hectare. The harvest is done manually.

Subsequently, the grapes are de-stemmed in stainless steel at a temperature of below 28º. After this process, Piérola Crianza is macerated with its skins for 30 days with two daily pumpings.

Finally, after malolactic fermentation, Piérola Crianza is aged for 18 months, with six-rackings in American oak barrels (70%) and French oak barrels (30%) whose age ranges between one and three years.

The Piérola Fernández winery was established in 1996 as a small family winery whose objective is to obtain complex, intense and elegant wines.

Tasting notes Piérola Crianza

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.
Sight Powerful and intense cherry colour. Well covered. Nose Powerful and intense, fruity and vanilla aromas. Taste Fleshy and balanced, fruity notes with toasted wooden notes. Prominent tannins. The aftertaste is long and wide.
Sight Intense cherry colour. Nose A powerful aroma, with good intensity originating from ripe red wild fruits (blackberry), and notes of cedar and vanilla. An excellent ensemble. Taste A serious, fleshy and balanced wine on the palate, with pleasant fruity nuances accompanied by and integrated with toasted woods and noble tannins. Powerful and long aftertaste with a large personality.
