Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Luis Alegre Crianza is a red wine from the appellation of origin (D.O) La Rioja produced by the winery Luis Alegre. This wine is a blend of varieties Tempranillo (85%), Garnacha (5%), Graciano (5%), and Mazuelo (5%).

Luis Alegre Crianza originates from vineyards of around 30 years old. The vines are planted in soils rich in clay and chalk at 500 meters above sea level.

After the process of a manual harvest, the grapes are macerated and fermented for 15 days. Once the malolactic fermentation process has been achieved, Luis Alegre Crianza is transferred to American and French barrels.

The same barrels are used to age the wine. The barrels are new, two, three and four years old. The wine spends 80% of the time in the American oak and 20% in the French oak barrels.

Luis Alegre Crianza rests for one year in the bottle before being sold on the market.

The winery is located in a singular 4-floor circular building (two of the floors are underground) in the heart of the region of Rioja Alavesa. This winery has innovative and forward-looking facilities with the best technologies, which complements the work conducted in the vineyards. Their great wines are elaborated on the base of the two following statements: a strict grape-selection process (with selection tables straight in the vineyards) and a pioneer form of addressing wood. Their wines are produced under the D.O.C. Rioja, most of them out of the variety Tempranillo, although the varieties Viura, Malvasía, Grenache and Mazuelo are also grown.
