D.O. Cigales (Castilla y León)
Vinea Crianza is a red wine from D.O. Cigales, produced by the winery Finca Museum, in Cigales (Valladolid).
Finca Museum was born with the expansion of Grupo Barón de Ley outside La Rioja. In fact, it is in Cigales where they found a unique vineyard that allowed them to make their first wines, showing all the character and uniqueness of this area.
Finca Museum has 185 hectares of their own, and 60 controlled hectares. These vineyards are planted with century-old vines, rooted on poor soils, with low yields, but rich in minerals. All of them are cultivated in a personalised way, applying sustainable viticulture that is respectful with the environment.
Vinea Crianza is a red wine made with Tinta del País from vineyards that are located on the farm itself.
Once the grapes are manually harvested, they are transferred to the winery in small quantities to preserve all their qualities. At the winery, the grapes go through pre-fermentation maceration at 5ºC in stainless steel deposits. In these same deposits, they ferment at 27°C with short but frequent pump overs. After the alcoholic fermentation, the wine remains in French and American oak barrels for 14 months.
