Viña Bujanda produces consistently impressive, traditional style Crianzas from its expanding array of vineyards. This is fresh and appealingly scented, with gentle red fruits, some fresh tobacco notes and zesty minerality.
Aromas of blackberry with spicy tones (clove and cinnamon) from American oak, mild tobacco and light balsamic notes. The Tempranillo variety showing its typical elegance and complexity. Fresh and silky tannins, developing a great volume and structure. Long and tasty ending with an extraordinary after-nose aroma.
Pair with Medium-aged cheeses. White and red meats. Lamb, cooked fishes and stews such as tuna with potatoes, beans, and beans with partridge.
