El Coto Crianza 2011 is a classic wine from Rioja. 12 months in barrels deliver its complexity, which on the palate comes out silky and well-balanced. This red is made from Tempranillo grapes harvested in 2011, one of the few vintages classified as 'Very Good' by the Spanish industry standard, 'Consejo Regulador of Rioja'. El Coto Crianza 2011 is especially well suited for cask-aging due to its outstanding levels of acidity, sugar, concentration and colour.
