Ermita Rioja Crianza

Description

Deep red in colour at the core with tawny hints on the rim, this beautiful Rioja shows concentrated black fruits on the nose with a little sweet vanilla. The mouth is powerful yet really well balanced showing ripe black fruits with with a little spice top boot. This is a younger style, very enjoyable Rioja that really shows off the producers modern approach.

Extra Notes

Bodegas Santalba is located in Gimileo, next to Haro, in the heart of Rioja Alta and only 40 kilometers from Logroño. Its geographical location, its climate and its soil have determined the uniqueness of this region, its lands and its wines, giving it an unmistakable character of its own. The starting point and fundamental basis of quality is the vineyard. That is why in Bodegas Santalba, the care, monitoring and exhaustive control of the plots and a rigorous selection of grapes from the main "terroirs" and places of the DOCa Rioja is vital for once in the winery and following the most authentic Rioja traditions of elaboration we get the best wines.

Region

Rioja

The Rioja wine region has the same name as one of the administrative regions in Spain (La Rioja) but the wine region as such does not coincide 100% geographically with it. The denomination of origin Rioja spreads along 54.000 hectares around three different Communities (La Rioja, Basque Country, and Navarre).
