This Luis Cañas Crianza red wine is a faithful reflection of the harmony of the vineyards where the grapes come from, located in Villabuena de Álava and neighboring municipalities in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa.
Luis Cañas Crianza has been made from a selection of Tempranillo grapes, 95% and a small percentage of Garnacha, 5%.
The vineyards where they come from are located in Villabuena de Álava, Samaniego, Leza, Navaridas, Baños de Ebro, with an average age of 30 years.
They come from clay, calcareous and sandy soils with a yield of 6500 kg per hectare at an altitude between 400 and 700 meters above sea level on hillsides. The grapes are harvested by hand and selected on a double table (bunches and berries).
The grapes are converted into must, and after a controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks, they are impregnated with the warmth of the oak. Luis Cañas Crianza remains 12 months in oak barrels, 60% French and 40% American, followed by 9 months in bottle.
It is a wine that stands out for its red color, its fruity character, and its balsamic notes. In the mouth it is round like few others, and elegant like almost no other.
A wine that reflects in its composition the strength of Garnacha and Tempranillo.
