Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Sonsierra Crianza Vendimia Seleccionada is a red wine produced by the winery Bodegas Sonsierra in San Vicente de Sonsierra, D.O.Ca. Rioja.

 

Bodegas Sonsierra was born in 1962, when more than 240 vinegrowers from San Vicente de la Sonsierra decided to create a cooperative where they could produce their own wines. This was the first cooperative in La Rioja to market its wines indicating the origin of each on the label.

Currently, Bodegas Sonsierra controls 516 hectares of their own vineyards, all of them belonging to their partners. These are planted with vines that go from 20 to 130 years old on average, distributed in 1500 small plots. Deep soils, mainly clayey-calcareous, planted only with native varieties. These vineyards are clearly influenced by a unique microclimate: mild temperatures all year round, with moderate rainfall, a good temperature difference between day and night in the ripening season, an excellent ventilation of the vines thanks to the winds that blow 80% of the days, and their South orientation with a certain tilt of the vines, favouring the plants' exposure to sunlight.

 

Sonsierra Crianza Vendimia Seleccionada is a wine made from Tempranillo, from old vines that are over 40 years old, located on the foothill of the Sierra de Cantabria.

The harvest is performed by hand. Once it arrives at the winery, and after a slight crushing, it goes through a pre-fermentation maceration for 48 hours. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel deposits for 8 days at a temperature (max. 28ºC) with periodic pump-overs. Once it has ended, it goes through post-fermentative maceration for 48 hours. The malolactic fermentation takes place in concrete deposits. The ageing takes place for 12 months in new used French and American oak barrels. Before it is launched on the market, it is left to stand in the bottle for a minimum of 12 months.
