Time in Barrel
Antaño is produced in our winery in Labastida, a historic village in La Rioja Alavesa protected by the Sierra de Cantabria along the Ebro River 4 km from Haro. The winery has an area of 35,000 m2 (15,000 m2 built area) with a production and bottling capacity of 50 million bottles a year. It currently houses 20,000 Bordeaux barrels of American and French oak wines lay dormant for future bottling and aging in bottle. The bottler has a capacity for 1 million bottles dedicated to reserve and gran reserve
Antaño Crianza is obtained from a careful selection of grapes. It is then fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 30°C with medium-high maceration, creating a wine with an exceptional aptitude for aging. After malolactic fermentation it is placed in American oak barrels for 12 months where it acquires roundness and balance between fruit and wood, making it more than just another classic Rioja Crianza.
Antaño Crianza is a Rioja wine with a ruby red color, with an upper middle layer, a clean and bright wine. It hits the nose with its own reduction from bottle aging, finally presenting itself as potent and complex thanks to the primary aromas of the varietals that compose it and the wood used to age it, providing with subtle hints of spice. On the palate it is somewhat tannic, giving way to a pleasant wine with a long, velvety and complex finish.
We recommend serving Antaño Crianza at 16°C.
Antaño Crianza pairs well with roasts, grilled and smoked meat, and cheeses. Antaño Crianza is also available for gifts, events and celebrations in 375 ml bottle format in boxes of 12.
