Pascual Larrieta Crianza Rioja is a modern fruity style of Rioja with delicious traditional vanilla oak overtones.
Made by the husband and wife team at Pascual Larrieta the Pascual Larrieta Rioja Crianza has great harmony of mature red fruits and subtle oak and is an elegant, fine, complex and very moreish wine.
The winery is located in Samaniego, which sits at the foot of the Sierra de Cantabria Mountains in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa where most of the inhabitants of this village are engaged in wine making. The winery’s 15 ha of vineyards, with an average age of 50, benefit from the marl soil present in this area, which is ideal for wine growing.
Bodegas Pascual Larrieta has remained faithful to the region’s traditional processing methods while applying technologies such as the pneumatic winepress and stainless steel tanks to its processes.
The winery uses casks made with 60% French wood and 40% American in which the wines age until ready for release on to the market.
