Vina Ane Selección Eduardo Monge Rioja 2019

Rioja, SpainViña Ane is a family winery established in 2004 by Eduardo Monge and Lorena Garbati, both born into families of grape growers. They are located north of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, sheltered by the slopes of the Mount Toloño in the Sierra de Cantabria. This tempranillo comes from 5 different vineyards, all on clay limestone soils. Post-ferment this rested in French oak, with 5% each aging in Hungarian and American oak, for 11 months. Perfumed raspberry, black cherry is seasoned with finely rasped baking spice and peppercorns, and wrapped with long, fine, firm tannins. There's an easy lift of acidity, carrying to this through the lingering finish. Very harmonious and finessed Rioja.Tasted: 21 March 2024Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
