Characteristics of Tagonius Crianza
Tagonius Crianza is a red wine from Madrid produced by Bodegas Tagonius.
The wine is a coupage between the best quality grapes of the Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah varieties from our best vineyards. It is aged in the cold for five to twelve days depending on the variety. Malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks.
Following careful fermentation at controlled temperatures, the wine ages in French and American oak barrels for 10 to 14 months. It is later rounded off in the bottle for another 18 months before being put on the market.

Although Madrid wines (Vinos de Madrid) are still relatively unknown among consumers, the region has enjoyed a prestige and historical past that dates back to the twelfth century. Current wines in the region however are far from the old wines of San Martín de Valdeiglesias, who in their golden years were perceived as some of the most prestigious wines in Spain. Today, the Vinos of Madrid face a highly competitive wine scene, but the effort local wineries regain this old prestige is evident in the quality of the wines being produced.
Bodegas Tagoinus is located 45 km Southeast of Madrid, in Tielmes de Tajuña. It spans 35 hectares, all within the D.O. Vinos de Madrid. Elders from the area claim that La Veguilla and its surroundings was home to producers of some of the best wines consumed in the Royal Court.
