Amaren Rioja Reserva - Wineseeker

Amaren Rioja Reserva

Outstanding deep and full bodied Rioja Reserva.

Amaren wines come from small plots owned by the Canas family located on slopes and terraces with low yielding old vines in the Rioja region. Amaren wines are only produced in good vintages, always hand-picked with utmost respect to the environment.

The Amaren Reserva is from 100% Tempranillo, all over 60-year old vines producing very low yields, destemmed and then sorted a second time individual berry sorted by weight. Fermented in French oak & matured in all new French oak for 18 months, lightly clarified.

Deep crimson right to the rim, concentrated aromas of leather, roasted coffee, black fruit and creamy oak. Full bodied and powerful wine with bold black fruit and firm dry tannins. With 9 years of age this wine is just starting into its prime drinking window - decant if opening young & will happily age another 5-10 years.
