2016 Vina Amezola Rioja CrianzaThe Wine Twit
Amézola’s 2016 Crianza, produced from 90% Tempranillo and 10% Mazuelo, has excellent depth and structure. Fine-grained tannins are complemented by oozing dark blackberry fruit and lifted by a red-fruit freshness which mirrors the elegant nose. As a Crianza, this wine has been aged for 15 months in oak (60% American and 40% French). This gives the wine subtle hints of vanilla spice and nutmeg which are beautifully combined with generous, ripe fruit notes.
