BALBÁS CRIANZA

Balbás Crianza is a wine made from our own vines and has been aged for a year and a half in French oak barrels.

The result is an unexpected red wine full of character, born to surprise thanks to its uniqueness, a great wine to lay down, with magnificent potential to evolve and endure in the bottle.

Intense cherry red with a purplish rim, on the nose the aromas of vanilla and toasted wood stand out, with hints of green pepper typical of Cabernet Sauvignon. A silky red with a smooth palate throughout, ending in a long and, above all, highly elegant finish.
