Our Comments
This is a great example of Crianza from the Castilla y León region, but originating from DO Cigales a lesser known area compared to its famous neighbour Ribera del Duero. Well integrated fruit and oak and a long complex finish. This wine will continue to improve in bottle. To be enjoyed now or over the next couple of years.
